Tucker’s Lament

A lonely, despondent Cockatiel

Neither sings nor displays pretty quill.

It’s Helen he misses;

He loves her sweet kisses.

Once together, he whistles with zeal!



Tucker’s Silly Song


Tucker’s Silly Song

(For Katie)

A sweet-talking Cockatiel named Tucker
Likes oatmeal and rice milk for supper.
Mommy whistles a tune,
He dances on a spoon,
Which fills the whole household with laughter.
