What A Bird Thought

Unknown Poet. Read the poem aloud. This is a good poem for children to memorize.

  I lived first in a little house,
           And lived there very well;
         I thought the world was small and round,
           And made of pale blue shell.

         I lived next in a little nest,
           Nor needed any other;
         I thought the world was made of straw,
           And covered by my mother.

         One day I fluttered from the nest
           To see what I could find.
         I said, “The world is made of leaves;
           I have been very blind.”

         At last I flew beyond the trees,
           And saw the sky was blue;
         Now, how the world is really made
           I cannot tell – can you?
