The Parrot


This bird had an attitude,
Right from the start.
It's bright verdure,
It's cute curved beak.

I told him to say the word love,
And so he recited 'love.'
I asked him to say the phrase,
I love you.

So he said, 'I love you.'
Realizing what he said,
He said,
'No I really love you.'

    tell me if I'm wrong
    but I caught, there is a hidden meaning than just a description of a parrot here
    I also feel there is more emotion in play than just admiration
    and I love the way you present it (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
