A tall scarecrow named Fred, was standing in the middle of a corn field.
He felt so lonely one day, after the kind old farmer passed away.
He saw birds in the sky, and he wanted to be friends with the ones who could fly.
But the birds were all scared of Fred, as scarecrows were meant to make them scared.
He could not tell them with words, that he did not want to scare the birds.
He could not even write a note, nor send the birds a Morse Code.
And Fred was very sad, to be the one that made others scared.
