Pelican   1 comment


by John Ciardi
The Reason for the pelican
Is difficult to see;
His beak is clearly larger
Than there’s any need to be.

It’s not to bail a boat with —
He doesn’t own a boat
Yet everywhere he takes himself
He has that beak to tote.

It’s not to keep his wife in —
His wife has got one, too.
It’s not a scoop for eating soup.
It’s not an extra shoe.

It isn’t quite for anything.
And yet you realize
It’s really quite a splendid beak
In quite a splendid size.

August 301

A couple of Saturdays ago, Hubby and I went to Camas, Washington for a BBQ.   We enjoyed a relaxing day out in the country atmosphere.   Always enjoy driving long stretches of highway with the hubby, soaking in the beautiful vistas  found in the state of Washington!
