Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  John Streeter Manifold

Poet Biography: 
John Streeter Manifold (1915-1985) was an Australian born Translator and Poet.



Poem: 
From billabong or pond he serenades the moon upon his small bassoon; the moon does not respond but in the hope she might he keeps it up all night. The meatworker in magpie suit goes home and practices his flute ten times on end he will begin the Bridal March from Lohengrin, or make the kookaburra smile by his attempts at Fairest Isle. He needs both industry and skill the satisfy his hunger did he run up that monstrous bill of his at the fishmonger? In arrogance and outward show but not in brains he's strong; olive above and white below with either eye a crimson glow he's waiting here, for figs to grow upon a currajong in intellect no less than colour the female bird is even duller. 1. Bull Frog 2. Butcher-Bird 3. Pelican 4. Fig Bird
