Read the poem “Home” and answer the questions that follow.
 
1. There is a big oak tree in the middle of Central Park. It is the home of the beautiful ebony chested, a horned lark. Why did he come there from his home in the tundra? Maybe to see his friend Cassandra.
 
2. She is a sparrow that sits with him on the very top limb. They sing together until the sun sinks low, and the day becomes dim. They sleep on their limb found on the big oak tree in the middle of Central Park. They find a cluster of leaves to shelter them from the rain when the sky turns dark.
 
3. There is a hole in the trunk, made from a woodpecker that they use when it is cold. The birds stay in there till the weather turns warm, and the sun shines like gold. They find their dinner in the bark and leaves. The bugs and seeds there is what they seize.
 
4. They fly over the park to stretch their wings And watch the small children fly like birds on the swings. There is a big oak tree in the middle of central park. It is the home of the beautiful ebony chested, a horned lark.
 
5. Why did he come there from his home in the tundra? Because the big oak tree, in the middle of Central Park, is the home of Cassandra and the lark.
