Today Abilene and I decided to head into the forest!
We are singers, and we needed to learn some new songs from the birds!
…teaching people to sing is our job
because we have learned from the masters*
As we were singing, we noticed quite a commotion with the squirrels!
They had been run out of their house by the tree,
who was repossessing it.
“Times are tough,” said the tree.
“And lately, it feels like all I ever do is give.”
But she was very nice,
Would we like to join her for a cup of tea?
Yes, of course!
We told the tree thanks for all that she had done for us.
And then suddenly we spied a little red elf running by the tree’s house!
We thanked the tree for the tea and quickly followed after him!
he ran into this little stick house…
We knocked on the door,
and he was very kind to ask us in.
He had made it himself, he said,
to have very low impact on the environment.
“Perfect!” we said.
But the time finally came to go back to our neck of the woods…
so we did.
