Cold Birdie
By Beth Beutler
  

1     
"Brrr, it's cold!"
The cardinal said.
"I wish I could sing
But my throat is red
"I feel like an ice cube
Thaw out, I must.
Would you get me a blanket?
It'll help, I trust!"
 
2     
"I'll get five for you!" I said.
"You'll be just fine."
I jumped on my bike
For a quick, bumpy ride.
 
3     
In my house I grabbed the blankets,
"May I take them, please?"
Mom looked at me funny,
And I started to sneeze.
