I’ve been talking to the bluebird lately
He says the action on the dirt road has been better than ever

Apparently a new family moved in down the street
With their big white trucks running over the lawns
Making loud noises

There is the constant movement of boxes
Back and forth

The bluebird asked,
Why do humans have so many things?
Why do they need all that?

So he sits and observes the strange people
Down the street
Fussing around
Creating havoc.

bean, this is such a beautiful poem! I love how you used dialouge within the text. That is something that I have not seen very often and you have inspired me to try this out. Bravo!
