Adivinanza (Riddle)

Posted October 1, 2008 & filed under Notebook.

Soy grande como una caja, luminoso como una estrella y amarillo como el sol.

Canto pio pio pio cuando voy a mi casa y te despierto en la mañana.

Mi casa es un nido, vivo en un árbol y me gusta caminar por él.

Me gusta volar por el cielo muy alto, comer maiz y dormir con mi mamá

Quién soy?

Un pájaro.

***

translation:

I am big as a box, luminous as a star and yellow like the sun.

I sing pio pio pio when I go to my house, and I wake you up in the morning.

My house is a nest. I live in a tree, and I like to walk in it.

I like to fly in the sky very high, eat corn, and sleep with my mom.

Who am I?

A bird.

The Leaf

fall-leaves-by-smallchih-v-flickr.jpgI am in a tree.
I see kids.
Birds fly above me.
I fall down and land on an ant.
I hear a train from far away.
A girl picks me up,
then she throws me on the ground.
The people step on me a lot of times.

I am the leaf.
