Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey diddle, diddle the Downy is little,


the Titmouse is shifty and shy.


The Chickadee’s perky,


the Nuthatch it quirky,


and the Blue Jay’s a nut-lovin’ guy!

  6. I have this big problem with crows,
    It’s something a homeowner knows.
    You work in the yard
    and he caws all day, hard.
    The bastard think he’s spoutin’ prose.

    My hummingbird feeders are thick
    With sugary treats for the quick,
    But chickadees find them
    And hummers don’t mind them
    So chicks lick until they are sick.

    It’s fall, so the geese should be here.
    October makes perfectly clear
    That honkers should soar
    When the leaves hit the floor,
    But it feels like they’re skipping a year.

  7. Perfect verse for these wonderful subjects!
