View Full Version : on the stage

On a big brown Earth Mound reading aloud,
My Outdoor Heart begins to pound, Faster
And Louder, like Iím in front of a Crowd of
Thousands; they do come from all around.

When my Voice finally gives In, Out, I sit
Down and look out on the Scene, Beautiful
Crowd. Some of the new Little Ones stay up
High in the Laurel Trees like people spies.

Talking fast But I canít understand not a
Word. Iím not so Very good, yet, so there is
Seldom applause, just lots of Cracking Nuts,
and Big brown Eyes, waiting for the Next One.
