An Inspired Poet

THE COCKATOO
by Serena Ippel

Inspiration: "The Cardinal" by Deborah Ruddell
from "Today At the Bluebird Cafe - a branchful of birds"

Coconut flakes and ice-cream shakes;
Diamonds and pearls,
A snow-covered world;
A lace trimmed dress,
A bridegroom's vest;
Vanilla ice-cream,
Strawberries with whipped cream!
A fluffy white cat
On a very white mat;
A white chocolate almond
And a glittering diamond.
His feathers so light
And perfectly white!
