Paper Birds


“Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fly can’t bird, but a bird can fly.”

My Mama made me a bunch of paper birds to hang from my ceiling. I’ve got sparrows, and finches and nuthatches twirling above my head. 

When we were little, my sister and I would tell her all our favorite animals and she would draw each one, cut them out, and stick them on popsicle sticks. Then we would play ‘animal parade’ with our beautiful hand drawn puppets. I didn’t realize how wonderful that was until just now.
