Poem from a book

This is a poem written by an older sister, to her younger sister.

To Cecy

If I were a bird
And you were a bird
What would we do?
Why you should be little and I would be big,
And, side by side on a cherry tree twig,
We’d kiss with our yellow bills, and coo-
That’s what we’d do!

If I were a fish
And you were a fish,
What would we do?
We’d frolic, and whisk our little tails,
And play all sorts of tricks with the whales,
And call on the oysters, and order a “stew”,
That’s what we’d do!

If I were a bee
And you were a bee,
What would we do?
We’d find a home in a breezy wood,
And store it with honey sweet and good,
You should feed me and I would feed you,
That’s what we’d do!
