THE OSTRICH IS A SILLY BIRD

                 




 

                  by Mary E. Wılkins Freeman

              The ostrich is a silly bird,
              With scarcely any mind.
              He often runs so very fast,
              He leaves himself behind.

              And when he gets there, has to stand
              And hang about till night,
              Without a blessed thing to do.
              Until he comes in sight.
