Jolly big young seagull looking for his Mum

Wandering round the car park, looking pretty glum

Mottled coat of feathers shows how young is he

Even though in size he may as big as Mum might be

Cocky though this youngster as young lads are oft

Pecks at various things he sees to show that he’s not soft

Yet, always watching skyward, he listens for her call

Alert to all around him in this empty shopping mall

By and by she find him, back from the nearby sea

Complete with tasty morsel which she gives him for his tea

Together then they fly away and I watch them for a while

Til they are but tiny specks up there, fading with my smile.
