"The Pinecone Turkey" poem

The Pinecone Turkey

Once a little pinecone turkey,
With feathers stiff and hard,
Wished that he could gobble loudly
Like turkeys in the yard.
They gobbled high, they gobbled low,
They gobbled with a trill;
And the little pinecone turkey
Could only keep quite still.

But when he stood on the table
On last Thanksgiving Day,
And saw a big brown turkey there
His heart was light and gay.
His heart sang high, his heart sang low,
His heart sang with a trill;
And the little pinecone turkey
Was glad he'd kept quite still!
