The Parrot - Poem by Vera Sidhwa

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
