Artist's Description

Crazy young crows, teens together
Slapstick silly in any weather.
They flap to the window, stalling right there,
Trying to frighten us into gray hair.

To bathe they were taught by their mom and their dad
but since turned on the loose, no baths have they had.
To wash their faces and heads they’re afrighted it’s plain;
they flap upright in fear, shake all around, and try it again.

They’ haven’t gone in past their noses I see:
Their mom made them bathe the day before they were free.
Each baby was taught to wash under its wings
wash its back, wash its face and those other things!

When each baby was finished and sparkling clean
and Mama was happy with her little teen
Their Papa, whose true heart felt a tug,
fed each little crow child a great, juicy bug!

That night everyone perched in a tree
and the youngsters together cried, “Oh! Woe is me!”
Confusion and wonder ran through their heads
because they no longer slept in their beds.

All grown up crow children make their own home
to which they return, no matter how far they roam.
They soon choose a mate and stay wedded for life:
Each crow-girl her husband, each crow-man his wife.

The wife lays her eggs and soon they hatch:
Lots of babies to feed, a whole great big batch.
The babies grow up like all girls and boys;
they never stop playing, they just get new toys.

And so now you know— all about the good Crow!
