    the rhyme and rhythm of the poem is so very nice. I feel that the little birds symbolize the poets as the poets are the most wise and knowledgeable among mankind for they observe the minutest details of the world around them and can teach anything with their experience and vision.

    Snarky. Carroll cloaked his ideas in riddle, and I admit defeat here. I could use a scholar's help to decipher the subtext. The form of the poem itself - I like each stanza's musical quality and parsimony. (Report) Reply

    Shall we giggle, laugh, and guffaw! Someone actually wants to tell Louie Carroll that his poetry is nonsense. Is this not merely a bedtime ditty in disguise? And who could teach Louie Carroll to write it better?

    Are there really only 365 poems in the English language? I commented on this poem just a year ago. There are tens of thousands of poems which could be poem of the day. (Report) Reply

    The meaningful joking poetry of the poet is a fun to read! (Report) Reply

    i like every fourth line of the stanzas...pretty well made....

    but i think it's not just about a little bird..or himself.......

    i think it has something to do with political and social things....
    is Caroll a social poet? ? ? ..
    hmmmmnn, if he is, it's not written in his biography.... (Report) Reply

    The poem described the little birds as enormous, significant, vital and a treasure not a trash.Therefore be proud of who you are. (Report) Reply

    The fact is, I like eating meat, but I don't like killing it. I pay slaughtermen (whether noble or plebian) to do that for me. Carroll cleverly makes me feel remorse without hating him for it. But I doubt if I shall change. (Report) Reply

    Nailed them real good. Them little birds getting fatter and fatter, eating bugs and seeds. Then flying away to another feast. (Report) Reply

    It's a clever little poem and quite intertaining I thought.

    I love the interlocking of the third and fourth lines by the first word. I also like the combination of morality and whimsy. (Report) Reply
