Lonely Scarecrow was sitting on the top of the fence post that he sits on every day and every night. It was a beautiful autumn day. There weren’t too many crows so he was very bored.
“If I had a pair of real legs,” said Lonely Scarecrow to himself. “I would go for a walk, or maybe I would run or even better, I would do a dance.”
That evening, Lonely Scarecrow and his partner, Hazel, were enjoying the fresh autumn air.
“Look,” said Hazel. “Joshua and Penny are enjoying the moonlight.”
Joshua and Penny are the owners of the farm where Lonely Scarecrow and Hazel live.
“Yes,” said Lonely Scarecrow. “It does look like they are having fun. Is that music I hear?”
“It definitely is,” said Hazel. “Oh, look. Now Joshua and Penny are dancing.”
“That is so romantic,” said Lonely Scarecrow. “If we had real legs, I would love to dance with you.”
“I would love to dance too,” said Hazel.
“Maybe we can,” said Lonely Scarecrow, seeing a few old broomsticks leaning up against the fence.
Lonely Scarecrow took two of the broomsticks and handed them to Hazel. He took two more for himself. He then took out some of the straw that was stuffed in his pants and slid the broomsticks in it’s place. He helped Hazel with hers.
Once they had the broomsticks in place, they carefully jumped down off the fence post. They were both a little wobbly at first but they held onto each other for support. Soon, they were dancing up a storm.
Joshua and Penny saw them and they stepped down from the porch. They joined their two scarecrows out in the field. They had a wonderful evening dancing away.
