The phoenix is truly a mythical beast
So full of its beauty and charm.
With fiery feathers and a graceful flight,
It seemed it could not be harmed.
Well one calm day, it flittered away
And took a trip soaring for fun.
Then it burst into flame that could not be tamed
And burned hotter than even the sun.
And my eyes turned so black for right where he'd sat
Lay a pile of ashes so red, and I wanted to cry
To see such a thing die, said I to myself in my head.
When to my surprise as I wiped my wet eyes,
The ashes then moved and they crackled
And from out of the dust came a bird colored rust
And it saw me and started to cackle
It fluffed out its feathers and exposed such a tail
So long, so bright and so strange
And that's when I felt the heat from its body as it then started to change
Then a fire began at the top of its beak
And it traveled down its body from bottom to peak
And it flew in the air and let out a chirp
Why, he tricked me that phoenix, that sly little twerp
And as it flew off again strait into the sky,
I strained just to watch him as he soared off so high
And as the bird flew away I thought only once more
The phoenix is a sly one, living on evermore
