I asked the three cousins
whose names begin with M
Micah, Makyah and Marley,
(Boy: age 8- Girl: age 6 – Girl: age 8 1/2)
“Who could live in this wee, tiny home?”
Right away, quick as a wink:
Micah thinks the person is, “an elf
who likes to play with Legos.”
Next, a thoughtful answer:
Makyah says, “It’s a girl bear who
isn’t very old, maybe six years old?”
(This happens to be her own age.)
We kept on walking in silence,
to the brand new playground at
back of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
Marley is the oldest, going to be nine
years old in November, said as she
was swinging high as she could,
“I need time to think!”
She’s quite the dramatic queen
who will occasionally set the scene.
We sat down at the picnic table
while I passed cookies out.
Ready for a story?
As told by Marley:
“Once upon a time
there were two little people.
A little man and a little, old woman.
They lived in back of a big, brick
house, with a tiny door.
There was a ringing doorbell.
They had a bird named Camille.
The bird always copied what they said.
Camille liked visiting other birds.
They were free, she was not.
The wild birds liked to play in the
big tree with Camille. She liked
to copy what they sang. One
day she found a paper and
it was a map to the pet store.
She thought she would like to
visit her old friends in their cages.
The little lady and little old man
couldn’t find their bird, Camille.
They started putting up papers
saying, “Lost bird. We are
looking for an orange and pink bird.”
They gave their address on the paper.
Camille saw the keys to the cage
to her friends and she unlocked
their cages. She let the birds out.
She brought the birds back to her
house where she lived. Her owners
came home and saw all the birds.
They started laughing!
The free birds liked their
new home which always kept
their windows and doors
Open. . . .
and they lived
happily ever after!”
