Charming Change of Perspective

Bird Talk
“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?”

as I remember it being recited at my daughter's preschool San Jose Montessori School, San Jose, CA, by her wonderful teacher Ilana Dover)
