“The Pelican,” Friend, Aug. 1987, 32
The pelican has a great big pouch
underneath his bill,
Where he can store his catch of fish
and always have his fill.
He perches near the salty sea,
and when he starts to fly,
He spreads his wings and looks just like
an airplane in the sky.
Sometimes he swims, or rides the waves,
or just sits in the sun.
It seems to me that the pelican
must have a lot of fun!
