A wonderful bird is a pelican
His bill will hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the helican.

A girl who is bespectacled

Don’t even get her nectaled

But safety pins and bassinets

Await the girl who fascinets.

Behold the duck.

It does not cluck.

A cluck it lacks.

It quacks.

It is specially fond

Of a puddle or pond.

When it dines or sups,

It bottoms ups.

Great Tail Grackle   1 comment

Great Tailed Grackle-72.jpgGreat Tail Grackle (Playa del Carman) — Image by kenne

The grackle’s voice is less than mellow,
His heart is black, his eye is yellow,
He bullies more attractive birds
With hoodlum deeds and vulgar words,
And should a human interfere,
Attacks that human in the rear.
I cannot help but deem the grackle
An ornithological debacle.

Crossing The Border 

Senescence begins
And middle age ends
The day your descendants
Outnumber your friends.

A cluck it lacks.

It is specially fond.
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.

The Pelican
By Ogden Nash

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill will hold more than his belican.

He can take in his beak

Food enough for a week,

But I’m damned if I see how the helican.
