NOT THE BIRD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He's not the bird I took him for
Last Line: And not a peacock, in the bragger!
Subject(s): Birds; Peacocks; Voices


He's not the bird I took him for.
I heard him in the distance screaming,
And tho' his voice was harsh, that hour
I dream'd of glories, golden, gleaming!

This hour he meets my closer view,
And tho' he cuts as big a swagger,
I find a little cockatoo,
And not a peacock, in the bragger!
