Who Will Live in the Little Cabin?

A story in verse about building a pretty little house that is pleasant to live in. Written as a series of questions, it slowly reveals surprising details. First, there’s a small man walking along a road carrying building materials and tools. Then there’s his job: building a little hut with beds and tables inside, and painting everything in bright colors. When the hut is ready and all the work has been done, the question is: Who is going to live in it? It turns out that the little man didn’t build the hut for himself, but for a couple of sparrows, who make it into their home, take care of it and invite guests to visit. And who are those guests? All kinds of birds: goldfinches with their chicks, and song thrushes with theirs. Everyone has a good time and is happy, thanks to the little man who built the little hut next to the road.
