Whatever Happened

Whatever happened
to the little bird
I sawed out of wood
when I was a kid

Painted in bright colors
Red and blue
with little yellow dots
The perfect combination
in my child's eyes

Took me days
I wasn't so nifty
with a fretsaw
Perseverance made
me finish
my work of art

Proud of myself
Learned I can
achieve anything
as long as
I didn't quit the job

Whatever happened
to the spirit
of a child
Lost in some draw
of adulthood
