White Pelican – Feathers

White Pelican


Employed to keep both warm and dry
Bird feathers help some ply the sky
A showy garb attracts a mate
A drab one shapes a 'camo' state
Winnow in the heavens above
While feathers sing a song of love
Important seems to keep them clean
So diligent becomes the preen
