Tree for the Birds

    “Tree for the Birds,” Friend, Dec. 1984, 39

    Tree for the Birds

    Trim a little Christmas tree

    For the chirpy chickadee.

    Tie some strings of popcorn to it;

    Hang some apples, raisins, suet.

    Sprinkle crumbs upon the ground;

    Chickadee will hop around.

    First he’ll eat, and then he’ll sing,

    “Thank you, friend, for everything!”
