Random Poem:

Bird Talk

Bluejay whistled to the Robin,
"Meet me in the Maple at half
past 8."
Then the Bluejay screeched
to make his point.
But Robin flew off tweeting,
"If you want to be my bird
you have to fly me down."
Now the Crow on the fence
overheard and mused, "That's
the birdy for me," as he flapped
his wings in glee.
"Hey, Robin, he boomed,
come fly with me and I'll
ruffle your feathers and make
you chirp!"
Robin preened and flapped
her wings but she hopped
on by tweeting, "You upset
me Crow... but you're a little
too able for me."
