    what is the meaning of this sentence?

    You've got feathers, I've got skin, but both our outsides hold us in...

    what does this sentence mean?

    thanks,

    thanks,
    This rhymes so it is probably poetry or a song....you should tell us this when you post your message.

    Unless he/she is talking to a bird, this is a metaphor of some kind. More of the verse should have been shown for us to say what the metaphor relates to.

    A guess would be that the sentence means that "even though we look different on the outside, we are the same on the inside." This could mean emotions as well as just bodily organs.

    Dear rapsody_08,

    You should "keep it up" with your talkativeness quoting the words of the COW, HORSE and Charlotte in order to be more intelligible your puzzled and tricky post.

    I have a nodding acquaintance with the "works" of your favorite Richard Purdy Wilbur, but I might tel you a few words in answer your eccentrically question.

    COW "I've got hooves, you've got webbed feet, but we both stand up to
    eat."

    and then the words of a chorus:

    Cause we've got lots in common where it really counts
    when it really counts, we've got large amounts
    What we look like doesn't count an ounce
    We've got lots in common where it really counts.

    Regards.

    V.
