In today's mosaic: My granddaughter - in Scarlet Ibis Costume last year; at nursery school. The birds are from a google search]
SCARLET IBIS AND COCRICO
Scarlet Ibis is dancing in the carnival parade,
She lives on the island of Trinidad.
Surely, little Cocrico, is dancing too,
On the island of Tobago.
In their costumes; homemade,
And they are both glad.
For when, costumes they take off; ringtone!
They can say to each other - Hello!
Over-the-seas; via cell phone.
