Though I nest in trees
Don't let it fool you
Though I'm beautiful
Don't be bejeweled
In air head held high
See my boxy crest
Attractive thick tail
I am wary of you
Listen who am I
Wood you fly with me
A very clever write that tickles the mind. Brilliantly crafted.
It's interesting, nice to read
I'd tweak the poem a bit, and, though many are not familiar with Wood Ducks, I'm sure, I think using 'Wood' in the poem is cheating some readers out of a test of their knowledge (somewhat) . But I enjoyed the poem. bri : )
Remember my poems are often pluralistic.
Ooops! In the midst of editing my comment, I guess I hit the wrong key and sent it on its way before I was finished. Ah, well. bri ;)
Despite there being other ducks whose males are 'colorful', having seen various duck species in USA, and having seen a wood duck in a tree and the males's 'crests', and having been startled by Wood Ducks ducks exploding off nearby pond waters
After Rob sent me the poem's title in a message, suggesting that I read the poem and try my luck solving it, I guessed Wood Duck....before coming to the poem's page. I stand by my answer. Ha! !
Great job Bri! I knew you would solve it!
