“A Red Bird’s Story” by Kingston Jackson

I like red,
and I like birds,
and I like red birds.
So, I like flying.
So do birds.
I don’t like worms.
Birds do.
So, I will look for birds sometimes.


This poem was written by Kingston Jackson, a 4th grader at Leschi Elementary school with WITS Writer-In-Residence Brian Dang. Performed at the Seattle Arts & Literary Arts series featuring Mary Beard on October 27, 2023, at Town Hall.
