Lorikeets

Lorikeets have to be my favourite bird (next to kookaburras) and these two visit me every morning. Their┬ácolours are magnificent and the screeching doesn’t bother me at all. They’re nice to have around ­čÖé

Here’s a poem I wrote about these beautiful birds a couple of years ago.

Lorikeets
The lorikeets all screech and swoop,
Gregariously they gather.
And into dusk dance in a loop,
The lorikeets all screech and swoop.
Then near red bottle-brush they group,
To form a colourful slather.
The lorikeets all shriek and swoop,
Gregariously they gather.
