The cuckoo is a calm and helpful bird
I heard he eats naughty worms
And from the forest he calls you
His simple song: – “Cuckoo, cuckoo.”
Professor To-Wit finds an opera star
TU-WHIT, the owl, was the director of the Birds Opera House, where performances were performed all summer.
And Two White thought Madame Coco, who was the lead singer in his company, was by far the greatest singer in the world. Moreover, he was silly enough to say it, and this gave Madame Coco such a good opinion of herself that she commanded extremely exorbitant prices—as many as twenty worms at a time.
Well, Mrs. Lynette called the professor one day and asked him why he had paid such exorbitant prices for Madame Coco, when her daughter, Mary Lynette, had a good voice and was willing to sing for five worms a day. The professor laughed. “Oh, excuse me, Mrs. Lynette, but that’s a good joke!” and Mrs. Linnet said nothing, only sounding very determined; Shortly thereafter the Bird People noticed that Mary Lynette had gone for a visit.
Then, months after Mary was gone, word spread through Birdville that a strange singer—whose name no one knew—had come to town. Madame Cuckoo seemed uneasy, but announced that she was not afraid—that a stranger certainly could not sing as well as she did.
Professor Tu-whit, who always liked to be kind to visitors from a distance, kindly offered the young lady the use of his opera-house; And she said, well, she’d like to try out for the part of Jenny Wren in the opera called Sing a Sony of Sixpence.
There was a huge audience at the opera that day.
The opera went more or less well, but everyone was waiting for the new singer. Finally, when Jenny Raine “clicks again” on the maid’s nose, which she had lost in the garden while hanging up the clothes, Jenny breaks into the Sixpence that closes the opera; And she did it so well that the audience went wild. As the last note faded away, they all rose to their feet, whistled, shrieked, flapped their wings, and called out to “Miss L—“, the name given by the young lady. Then Professor Two-White led her forward and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, I have the honor to introduce to you Miss Mary Lynette, who has just returned to our fair city having refined her voice. I have decided to employ her as my leading star.” Henry Altmus Company.
