|Western Meadowlark, by Adam Grimm|
Did you know that some cultures consider the meadowlark to be capable of human speech?
Arapaho mothers would feed their children meadowlark meat or eggs for four days and say certain prayers to give their children the gift of eloquence.
But meadowlarks are also thought to say mocking or dirty things! The bird that creates great orators is itself a joker.
May our speech by playful, wise, and fearless.
