I am dark blue to purple below with

orange red feet!

PURPLE SWAMPHEN
Poet and illustrator: Akeisha Umuroa

When I walk I flick my tail up and down


And its white underneath!
I can escape danger by taking to the air!
When I fly, my long legs and toes trail behind
me,
Or hang underneath my body!
I can also swim and like to forage on the
edge of the water,
Amongst the reeds: eating rushes and
animals, such as frogs and snails.
I have to survive so I do steal eggs and sometimes eat ducklings!ducklings!
