The other day I finally got around to cleaning some of the windows. I wondered if Quentin would be at the front door even more enthusiastically than before, talking to his reflection, hoping this “friend” would come out to play.
Sure enough, he appeared in a short time and had a conversation with himself at the window next to the front door.
Then he hopped onto the railing and sunned himself. (By the way, he does have two legs. Maybe he’s just warming one leg in his feathers.)
I told him he’s making a mess of the railing. What if someone wanted to hold onto it to steady themselves as they walked down the steps? But he just looked at me incredulously and said, “Well, I have to go somewhere!”
Just look at his beautifully designed head. So many different feather sizes, shapes, and colours, all in perfectly arranged sets of patterns.
Quentin Quail is beautiful,
Still his search is dutiful,
Hunting for his long lost mate,
Lonely living is his fate.
Yet he visits at the door,
His reflection to adore,
Thinking this is Queenie Quail,
Though he once again will fail.
