Penguin And Friend

I wish to write an englyn About a little penguin, Who was visiting England With his friend the capuchin, Looking very smart and trim, He had brought his mandolin, A delightful specimen, Really something of a gem, And he likes to play it when He and the penguin attend The yearly festival again, They will both remember then Their first sighting of the Queen, Who was wearing gold and cream, In what looked like velveteen; When the show came to an end They departed from the scene, High in everyone's esteem, And they sang a requiem As their boat sailed up the Thames.

Penguins are my favorite animal... I must say i am surprised, or maybe not, that the penguin did not jump into the Thames..

Thanks, Silent One - might have upset the harmony. Yes, they are certainly cute.
