The Parrot Comments

Rating: 4.4

In painted plumes superbly dress'd,
A native of the gorgeous east,
By many a billow toss'd;

A great narrative of the life style and beauty of parrots and full of humor too.

When children first begin to spell, And stammer out a syllable, We think them tedious creatures; But difficulties soon abate, When birds are to be taught to prate, And women are the teachers. - -Found the poem humorous but do I detect a bit of gender bias going on?
