Semblables ou différents

 

La maman de Moinelle
rangea la boîte à repas dans
le cartable et serra sa fille
entre ses ailes.
— Bonne journée, ma
chérie, dit-elle. Fais
attention, sois polie…
— Oh, Maman, s’écria
Moinelle en riant, tu me
répètes ça tous les jours !

 

 

 

— Et souviens-toi, ajouta la maman de Moinelle, ne t’approche pas de Serpy. Il est différent de nous.
Moinelle aurait bien voulu que sa maman ne lui dise pas ça.
Serpy était son meilleur ami. Mais la maman de Moinelle ne l’aimait pas.
— Les gens de son espèce mangent les gens de notre espèce, répétait-elle tout le temps. Les moineaux et les serpents ne peuvent pas être amis !

Semblables ou différents

 

À l’autre bout de la ville, le
papa de Serpy garnissait la
boîte à repas de son fils
d’oeufs d’oiseaux.
— Le plat du jour, fiston !
clama-t-il fièrement.
— Mais je déteste les oeufs,
Papa, grommela Serpy.

 

 

 

— Dans notre famille, on mange des oeufs d’oiseaux de père en fils depuis plusieurs générations, répondit sèchement le papa de Serpy. Allez, file. Et souviens-toi, ne t’approche pas de Moinelle.
Rempli de colère, Serpy s’éloigna en rampant sur le sol. — Les moineaux sont différents, lui cria son papa. Tu ne peux pas devenir ami avec ta nourriture, enfin !

Lorsque Serpy retrouva Moinelle à l’école, ils savaient pour l’un et pour l’autre. — Ta maman t’a dit… ? interrogea Serpy. Moinelle hocha la tête. — Ton papa aussi ? demanda-t-elle. Serpy hocha la tête. — Nos parents se trompent, Moinelle, dit-il. Montrons-leur que nous sommes plus semblables que différents.

Semblables ou différents— Excellente idée ! s’exclama Moinelle. Montrons-leur ! Elle prit une feuille de papier sur laquelle elle dessina deux cercles.

— Dans la partie jaune du cercle de gauche, expliqua-t-elle, nous allons noter uniquement les choses qui concernent les moineaux. Et dans la partie bleue du cercle de droite, uniquement celles qui concernent les serpents. Cela montrera ce en quoi les moineaux et les serpents sont DIFFÉRENTS.
— Je pensais que nous voulions réfléchir à ce qui fait que nous sommes SEMBLABLES, fit Serpy, perplexe.
— C’est ce que nous ferons apparaître dans la partie verte du milieu, répondit Moinelle en souriant.

— D’abord, réfléchissons à notre apparence, dit Moinelle. On est semblables ou différents ?
— TRÈS différents, soupira Serpy. Je suis long, déplumé et fin. Tu es petite, potelée et soyeuse.
— C’est vrai, répondit Moinelle. Je ressemble à une houppette, et toi, à une corde.
Moinelle dessina une houppette dans le croissant jaune et une corde dans le croissant bleu.

— Maintenant, dit-elle, notre façon de nous déplacer, semblable ou différente ?
— TRÈS différente, répondit Serpy, l’air affligé. Tu voles dans les airs en battant des ailes, et moi, je rampe sur le
sol en zigzaguant. — En gros, indiqua Moinelle, je me déplace comme un avion et toi, comme un train.
