When You Stand On The Tip Of Your Nose by N M Bodecker

When you stand on the tip of your nose,

keeping perfectly still,

while the birds build their nests twixt your toes,

as they certainly will,

speak kind and encouraging words,

don’t wiggle however it goes,

as you might inconvenience the birds

or scamble their eggs with your toes.
