Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather

Harry, the mouse, didn’t know what to do.

He was bored, he was anxious and feeling quite blue.

He’d eaten all his cheese and the cat was outside.

It was no fun to run and to hide.

He stuck his whiskered face out the tiny mouse hole.

His gaze wandered from tables to a green kitchen bowl.

Then what should he spy but a cage full of birds.

“Feathers!” He shouted this one and only word.

Three birds sat sleeping on a perch in a cage;

It was made of bamboo, since that was the rage.

Harry snuck up on them and he yanked on a bird’s orange tail.

It let out a squawk and started to wail.

The birds all woke up and saw Harry, the mouse,

Running from their cage and all ‘round the house.

They chirped and they flapped their wings really hard

And their feathers fell out, flying into the yard.

“Feathers!” Harry shouted and gathered them up

And carried them back to his hole in a cup.

He lay on his bed and he blew them high in the air,

And felt joyful and happy instead of in despair.
