My Heart Is Blue



When I am sad
My heart is blue.
Does this ever
Happen to you?

Before I Barely Knew Anything















Before I barely knew anything
I awakened each summer morning
To the cawing of crows
And thought,
How very tall these trees
In which they gather to ruffle their feathers
In the morning breeze,
How tall these trees
And how much these crows must see.

I climbed an orange tree,
So frightened by the height,
So amazed at the sight of neighboring houses
And city streets
And thought about what the crows must see
From the tops of the sycamore trees
And from higher still
As they rise into the sky,
Knowing I would never know
What they know,
Before I barely knew anything.

All Day Long



A little brown bird
Sang this song:
"I’ve been a little bird
All day long."

Kitty Up A Tree





Kitty up a tree,
Glad it isn’t me,
‘Cause if it were
I’d have no fur,
And speak English.
