Explanation of the poem-Paying Calls

A man goes to see his friends whom he hasn’t seen for a long period of time.So he is not sure where they live. He has to walk on the foot paths, over creaky gates and sometimes even in the bush. He roams country side looking for them and finally sees them in various places . Some are his old friends and some of them are the ones he hasn’t seen for long time.

He remembers how they used to take long walks in the country side when the weather is warm and fresh.They used to enjoy life to the fullest and highly content about their lives.

The summer has come again and yet he hasn’t seen any of his friends enjoying the summer.They all are staying at home.He visits each and every one of his friends and talks about their past and how they enjoy life.His friends listen patiently while he he talks continuously. Not a single friend talks with him.

Do you know why?

Because they all are dead.

any questions, suggestions or comments? I will gladly receive all of them.

    sometimes I sit with both eyes closed
    but all the same I’ve heard
    Thy’re saying ”i wan’t talk because
    He is a thinking bird”
    I’m olive green and sulky,and
    The family say,”Oh yes,
    He’s silent but he is listening
    He thinks more than he says
    ”He ponders on the thinking he hears,
    Prefering not to chatter!”
    And this is true,but why it’s true
    Is quite another matter
    I’m working on some shocking things
    In order to surprise them,
    And when my thoughts are ready I’ll
    Certainly not disguise them!
    I’ll wait and see and choose a time
    When everyone is present,
    And clear my throat and raise my beak
    And give a squawk and start to speak
    And go on for about a week
    And it will not be pleasant
