A Satin Bowerbird (A Short Pantoum) - Poem by Diane Hine

Rearranging blue
ornaments and shiny words
perfects your pantoum
Mister Bowerbird.

Ornaments and shiny words;
wizardry
Mister Bowerbird,
but you’re always so busy.

Wizardry
perfects your pantoum,
but you’re always so busy
rearranging blue.

    The bower bird is so busy arranging and rearranging objects to decorate his cage! So Mr Bird has his apartment ready to invite Miss bird....! The comparison of building his nest to writing a pantoum by arranging words in the right order is very ingenious! ! (Report) Reply
