The Cockatoo; From The Chinese - Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon
A present from tropical Annam,
A bird with a human speech,
A gloriously plumed cockatoo
Rosy as the flower of a peach!
And they did what they also do
To the learned, the witty, the sage;--
Got a cage with the stoutest of bars
And shut it up fast in the cage.
