Question

Read the following extract and extend it by adding an imaginary paragraph of your own in about 120 words:

The evening came, and nobody appeared to bring the poor bird a drop of water; it opened its beautiful wings, and fluttered about in its anguish; a faint and mournful ''Tweet, tweet,'' was all it could utter, then it bent its little head towards the flower, and its heart broke for want and longing. The flower could not, as on the previous evening, fold up its petals and sleep; it dropped sorrowfully. The boys only came the next morning; when they saw the dead bird, they began to cry bitterly, dug a nice grave for it, and adorned it with flowers. The bird's body was placed in a pretty red box; they wished to bury it with royal honours. While it was alive and sang they forgot it, and let it suffer want in the cage; now, they cried over it and covered it with flowers. The piece of turf, with the little daisy in it . was thrown out on the dusty highway.

Solution

The next day the boys went in search of another bird which they could put in the cage. They felt terribly guilty for what had happened to the lark, “We have been very careless indeed.” they said to each other “We will get another bird and look after it very well.” They spoke to their mother and asked her for help to get another bird. However, she was quite angry with them. “You have done a terrible thing, boys,” she said. “You have killed an innocent bird. You have no right to put free birds in a cage. How would you like to be shut up in a room all the time and not be allowed to run and play freely? You are never going to cage a bird again. Is that Clear?
