  • Box poem:

    Bird house, a home

    A little wooden bird house, smells

    of fresh cut wood, sitting on a

    pole, just made yesterday

    no one come to look.

    That new morning a blue bird

    like a sapphire in the sky singing

    comes by to look, the bird house

    hopes for a friend,

    the bird tells the bird house,

    I'll be back soon

    The bird flies away,

    the bird house is lonely,

    the bird comes back with another

    by its side,

    the bird makes a nest,
