HOW TO TELL THE BIRDS FROM THE FLOWERS

in the USA in 1907

AUTHOR'S APOLOGY.

Not every one is always able
To recognise a vegetable,
While others use their intuition,
And even I make no pretense
Of having more than common sense;
Indeed these strange homologies
Are in most flornithologies,
And I have freely drawn upon
The works of Gray and Audubon,
Avoiding though the frequent blunders
Of those who study Nature's wonders.

For those of you who have difficulties in determining birds from flowers, this book will be invaluable. For those of you who do not have a problem in this respect, you will find the verses most amusing.


The Parrot. The Carrot.

The Parrot and the Carrot we may easily confound,
They're very much alike in looks and similar in sound,
We recognize the Parrot by his clear articulation,
For Carrots are unable to engage in conversation.
