    THE PLANTING BIRD

    I planted a tree
    The other day
    I watered it in
    Then walked away

    I walked a while
    Then took a rest
    I saw Nature at
    Its very best

    Then a bird ---- swooped down
    Out of the sky
    I watched it as
    It flew nearby

    It was white ---- and gray
    But mostly blue
    It looked much ---- the way
    That Blue Jays do

    The bird landed ---- near me
    On the ground
    The soil was moist
    And rich ---- dark brown

    The bird made ---- a gentle
    Friendly squeak
    It had a pointed seed
    Held in its beak

    It was a pointy acorn
    Chestnut brown
    The bird tapped it gently
    On the ground

    Because the seed ----- was pointed
    Long and thin
    The bird ---- just simply
    Pushed it in

    With the seed ---- firmly planted
    In the ground
    The bird flew away
    Without a sound

    And in just ---- as little
    As two weeks out
    The pointed acorn
    Began to sprout

    I knew acorns ---- were planted
    By furry squirrels
    With their nervous ways
    And tails in curls

    But it never ever
    Occurred to me
    That a bird could also
    Plant a tree
