Classic humorous and funny poems about animals, snakes, lions, cats, birds, frogs, and more.
Oh! tell me have you ever seen a red, long-leg'd Flamingo?
Oh! tell me have you ever yet seen him the water in go?
Oh! yes at Bowling-Green I've seen a red long-leg'd Flamingo,
Oh! yes at Bowling-Green I've there seen him the water in go.
Oh! tell me did you ever see a bird so funny stand-o
When forth he from the water comes and gets upon the land-o?
No! in my life I ne'er did see a bird so funny stand-o
When forth he from the water comes and gets upon the land-o.
He has a leg some three feet long, or near it, so they say, Sir.
Stiff upon one alone he stands, t'other he stows away, Sir.
And what an ugly head he's got! I wonder that he'd wear it.
But rather more I wonder that his long, thin neck can bear it.
And think, this length of neck and legs (no doubt they have their uses)
Are members of a little frame, much smaller than a goose's!
Oh! isn't he a curious bird, that red, long-leg'd Flamingo?
A water bird, a gawky bird, a sing'lar bird, by jingo!
Lewis Gaylord Clark.
