Parrots

Full of colour and so very gay
my voice it can be very shrill
keep me happy so i won't stray

See my feathers all in array
I sit and watch upon the sill
Full of colour and so very gay

Keep that beak of mine  at bay
I can use it with such  great skill
keep me happy so i won't stray

Now watch my fancy foot play
as i sit  here  and preen a quill
Full of colour and so very gay

so just sit and watch my byplay
its fun and will give you a thrill
keep me happy so i won't stray

thus my joy for you I will relay
fill my tray you know  the drill
full of colour and so  very gay
keep me happy so I won't stray

    G'day Shadow... Like the set out of your poem and you tell the story by a parrot so well. I suppose I'm lucky on some days. An Eastern Rosella turns up and sits on a fence facing my computer window and watches me. Enjoyed - Lindsay

    ty Lindsay I love parrots and I used to have two Barrabands and a scarlet Pennant they are fascinating birds I would love an African Grey but at nearly 65 it would not be fair as it would outlive me hugs
