Treasure Island

Vera Sidhwa


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

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
