Carolina Parakeet

d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille #88: And the Word Is… extinct

Carolina Parakeets

*

There once were parakeets

here in this un-tropical

Northeastern clime

Small green birds with cheery

red and yellow faces

Friendly, social bids that brightened

the landscape – until they were gone,

completely disappeared, became extinct

I wonder if the mocking bird still repeats

their call

    1. The last of the species died in the Cincinnati Zoo in 1918 and they were declared extinct in 1939. It would have been awesome to see them flying around. They were the only parrot native to the East, Mid-West, and Plains States
