Marty’s World: Meet Francis
Francis is Marty’s inseparable friend!
Their friendship is strong
and won’t come to an end.
Marty found Francis when he was just small
He fell from his nest in a tree very tall.
The poor little birdie lay flat on the ground,
He might have been eaten, had he not been found!
Lucky for Francis that Marty was there,
She took him back home and gave him good care.
She made him a nest and gave him some food,
he seemed to be happy and in a good mood.
He chirps when he sees her, and whistles a song,
He follows her everywhere, the whole day long!
Cake crumbs, tiny bugs and earthworms.
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.
Francis is named after Francis Bacon (1561-1626), an English philosopher and
statesman who is credited with developing the scientific method and who was influential throughout the scientific revolution.
