Bird Talk by Aileen Fisher

‘Think…’ said the robin,
‘Think…’ said the jay,
sitting in the garden
talking one day.

‘Think about people
the way they grow:
they don’t have feathers
at all, you know.

They don’t eat beetles,
they don’t grow wings,
they don’t like sitting
on wires and things.’

‘Think!’ said the robin.
‘Think!’ said the jay.
‘Aren’t people funny
to be that way?’
