A Satin Bowerbird (A Short Pantoum)


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.

    I'd never heard of bowerbirds or pantoums before reading this and you have inspired me to find out more about both. A clever rhyme. (Report) Reply

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
