The Dictionary Bird

Standard

A little nonsense for the end of the week.

 

Through my house in sunny weather

Flies the Dictionary Bird

Clear to see on ever feather

Is some outlandish word.

 

Huggermugger gimcrack guava

Waggish mizzle swashing rain

Bird, fly back into my kitchen.

Let me read those words again.
