PTERI DAY SPECIAL
The Pteri Champion
The Pteri flies, wings beating
racing for the ending line.
The thrill of the race comes creeping,
up through the Pteri's spine.
In this competition of flying,
she's trained for days and nights.
The adrenaline is piling,
she can see the end, the lights.
Her wings flap, give their all
desperate to stay ahead.
She wants first place, standing tall,
words of victory to be said.
Her opponents are catching
she won't fail now!
But she's wanted this since hatching,
and she know she has the wow.
And there it is, the finish line,
the crowd surrounding.
She streams across, feeling divine,
the cheers and applause sounding.
She just feels amazing,
wearing her medal of gold.
The Pteris around her praising,
her victory a legend it is told.
Arrival of the Golden Pteri
There's nothing unusual or out of place
Not even a cloud in the sky
until you hear something rustling
and look up to see something fly
Above your head, a great sight
A golden bird above the tree
As bright as the sun, you see
it's the arrival of the Golden Pteri
He looks down upon you
and your mind fills with riches
For Neopoints so plentiful
they'll overflow your britches.
Your whole life you've waited
you've waited to catch sight
and the shine of the coin so great
that they'll light up the night.
The Golden Pteri sees you
and then he flies around
and hope that soon comes the rain
of Neopoints onto the ground.
The stamps you'll buy
the gourmet meals to eat
the trips and exotic vacations
you'll sure be ready for this treat!
But then he leaves and flies off
and soon he's gone beyond where you can see
and you realize that far too late,
none of your pets are Pteri.
Celebrating Pteri Day
On the 8th day of
the month of Storing,
watch the skies to see
all the Pteris soaring.
With their feathered body,
small wings, and long tail,
Pteris were truly made to
take to the sky and sail.
If you want a special treat
on this year's Pteri Day,
take some time to travel,
to Tyrannia make your way.
In Tyrannia, you'll see
Pteris in all their grand
in the sky and trees,
enjoying their native land.
Just take care when visiting
to not disturb a nest,
especially if it contains eggs,
a Pteri family in need of rest.
A Dancer in the Skies
Above the rooftops of Neopia,
With good fortune you might see
A flash of color in the sky…
The aerial Pteri.
Her frame is stout and makes her seem
A bit too bound to land,
But when in flight, she is a sight
Magnificent and grand.
She mingles with the airy clouds,
Oblivious to onlookers below,
A waltz in flight, a pirouette,
A lofty do-si-do.
Then she achieves an arabesque
With flawless grace and style,
And breaks into a jaunty jig,
Airborne all the while.
But at last, home beckons her,
The place where her heart lies;
At night, in dreams, she’ll once again
Be a dancer in the skies.
Pteris in Flight
See the Pteri way up there,
Flitting through the sky.
Swooping high and swooping low,
This bird can really fly.
The Pteri loves to soar alone,
Flying wild and free.
They only stop to catch their breath,
Resting upon the tallest tree.
Flying is a special skill,
That most of us will never know.
But Pteri's soars effortlessly,
In the light of the sun, they glow.
So if you see a feather,
Lying gently on the ground.
Be sure to pick it up,
Because good luck will then be found!
Down For Maintanence Pteri
Beautiful are the feathers of a Pteri,
Graceful are their flights among the trees,
However the same cannot be said for thee,
Down For Maintenance Pteri.
I admire your sharp claws, your shiny beak,
Your coat of feather is the finest I've ever seen,
However you're not my favourite person to see,
When in hurry to play Pyramids.
WHAT?! NEOPETS IS DOWN FOR THE DAY?!
Oh, Down For Maintenance Pteri,
How could you do this to me
When my game of Wingoball hasn't finished?
Your fiery red eyes, full of malice,
When you passed the message to me,
You're starting to get on my nerves,
That taunting smirk on your face.
Avenge I must on the time
I could have made some extra NPs,
So let us meet in the Battledome,
Where hopefully you'll meet your doom! (or not)
Faerie Pteri Flight
Majestic creature of the sky,
Looking down from up so high.
With feathered wings and curvy beak,
You cross the skies in a colourful streak.
Spreading joy wherever you go
With a tail that gives a subtle glow.
Your song which warms the heart of man,
And makes them wish for your return again.
Since as the warmth of summer wanes,
And the cold of winter its place gains,
You leave us for some distant shore,
A Neopian island never seen before.
Oh King of birds, who has charmed our hearts!
Return unharmed when summer starts.
But let this cold not chill your flight,
Return to ys when time is right.
Pteri, Pteri, Oh, So Merry!
Pteri, Pteri, oh, so merry!
What a special day during the seasons!
All creatures honor this species.
These birds are certainly the reasons,
We give them our curtseys,
And bows come from the citizens.
Pteri, Pteri, oh, so merry!
Let’s celebrate all day until night!
Music, dance and laughter all around,
Everything about this day is right.
No sadness or despair to be found,
Darkness flees from this happy light.
Pteri, Pteri, oh so merry!
What shall we do this day?
Go for a swim at Kiko lake,
Or take a walk down Neopia way?
Maybe, play with a baby Draik?
There’s just too much to say.
Pteri, Pteri, oh, so merry!
Shout out loud; put your hands up,
Wave your wings over your head,
For today we raise our cup.
“To our friends,” we have said,
“Let us give them a yup!”
The Lonely Maintenance Pteri
Well I'm the Maintenance Pteri, I don't even have a name!
I only come around whenever you can't play this game -
Unless I'm in the battledome where people beat me up
It seems like other pteris are the ones with all the luck.
Just for once I'd like to have a chance to go and fly,
but instead I'm stuck here making all the players cry!
If you see me on your screen it means the site is down
and more than likely, seeing me will cause you to frown.
I'm underpaid, I'm overworked, what's a bird to do?
I'd love to take a vacation, but they never let me choose!
They always put me in the most miserable positions
I want to go and have some fun but it's not my decision.
So next time that you see me, stop and think, have some heart!
I know that I'm annoying, but I have to play my part
It's my job to to notify you that the website isn't right
but maybe with this poem, I'll be granted time for flight.
How Awesome the Pteri Is!
Some Neopians are out there seeking the perfect pet,
If they overlook a Pteri, they might regret,
They may not be as pretty as some of the others,
But who could resist those beautiful feathers?
With their beaky smile and wings ready to fly,
I wonder why,
There aren't more,
Playing gracefully in the Tyrannian sky.
They're such troopers regarding all areas,
From Terror Mountain where the environment is so tepid,
To Moltara where the molten rock is rancid,
Braving the waters of Maraqua is quite epic!
They're no strangers to the Haunted Woods, too!
You might hear the haunted melody of "Weewoo".
Pteris can mimic that sound,
With a scare that can make you cower and run for higher ground.
The Golden Pteri may visit some day. If you have a Pteri you know what your random event might say? "The Golden Pteri flies by, and suddenly it's raining Neopoints! He must like you!" It could be your lucky day!
Even if you're just into UC pets, Draiks and Krawks,
Don't forget that Pteris ROCK!
If you didn't know that, you know that now,
On behalf of the Pteri, I take a humble bow.
Happy Pteri Day!
