Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather

Two crows are touching beaks today
While we are rolling by.
A minute on, we see two geese—
The Love of either’s eye.

Now we, of course, have been in love
For nearly fifty years.
When it arrives—the truest kind—
It never disappears.

And so when we see animals
In sweet proximity,
We just assume they’re lovers, too,
Who’ve solved the mystery.

 1. Dumb …

Due to your most foul demeanor,
I will look for pastures greener.

2. … and Dumber

Demeanor he got,
The longer I fought.

Shakespeare Couplet: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (48)

In “Pyramus,” we watch the wealthy folks
Break in with varied, uninvited jokes. (5.1)
