The Smoker Parrot

John Shaw Neilson

 Next Poem          

He has the full moon on his breast,
The moonbeams are about his wing;
He has the colours of a king.
I see him floating unto rest
When all eyes wearily go west,
And the warm winds are quieting.
The moonbeams are about his wing:
He has the full moon on his breast.

    WOW, I REALLY DIDNT ENJOY THAT POEM MUCH, NO OFFENSE TO WHOEVER WROTE IT. I MEAN, WHAT IS THIS PARROT SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT? THE IMAGERY IS PRETTY BUT IM JUST BEYOND CONFUSED. ALSO THERE WAS HARDLY ANYTHING HAPPENING IN THE POEM, JUST A PARROT CHILLIN WITH THE MOON – NOT RELATABLE AT ALL, MAYBE ITS JUST ME. ANYONE ELSE FEELIN THIS WAY TOO?
