Creature of Many Talents

This morning I watched an acrobat
swinging through the air.
She looked so beautiful in the sky
with the wind blowing through her hair.

This morning I watched a carpenter
showing off her skill.
She reminds me of my Grandpapa
when he works with his saw and drill.

This morning I watched a builder
constructing a new deck.
She seemed so strong and practical
carrying timber across her neck.

This morning I watched the Orang-utan
in her enclosure at the zoo.
I thought she seemed so clever.
I wish I could do those things too.
