Turtle sleeps in a dream.
He gets two beautiful wings.
What is everyone screaming?
“Be careful! Turtles cannot fly.”
Pink Birds are telling Turtle,
“You can fly with those wings.”
Turtle is so afraid and stands still.
Is that ok? Can a turtle ever fly?
Turtle hears wind speaking,
“I hold you. Let’s swing together.”
Swing, swing, slow swing,
fast swing with soft wind.
Up to the high in the sky.
Down to a beautiful park.
Above a lake near a river.
What a wonderful swing!
Turtle sees a duckling crying.
"Why is that duckling upset?"
"Does she need a real friend?"
“Let’s swing to that pond "
Turtle takes off the wings.
He quickly jumps into the water.
Swim, swim, slow swim,
fast swim close to Duckling.
Turtle asks the little duckling,
“What can I do for you, sweetie?”
Duckling is crying even louder,
“Mommy, I lost my way home.”
“You are not alone. Duckling!”
“I can help. Pink Birds can help.”
Duckling stops crying and smiles.
“It is so kind of you able to help!”
Turtle holds Duckling up,
He puts Duckling on the back.
Where can they find Mom Duck?
In the pond? But no duck around.
Pink Birds fly above the pond,
What are they tweeting now?
“Please help! We need to find,
'Where is Mommy Duck?'”
All the birds hear it and start tweeting
Do they really wake up Turtle? Yes. Too Loud!
Turtle sees Pink Birds tweeting as a music band.
