His poem, Cockatoo, was written for his daughter after her cockatiel flew up into the blue sky to never return.

 

cockatoo, cockatoo
through my window in you flew
made a dream of mine come true

stay with me, stay with me
laugh and chatter, play with me
and I will love thee faithfully

beady eye, beady eye
freely will I let thee fly
and guard thee truly till I die

cock-a-two, cock-a-three
lay a little egg for me
raise a cock-a-family

fluffy little cock-a-chicks
I will teach them all the tricks
turn them into clever dicks

have a little cock-a-farm
filled with all your cock-a-charm
cockatoo, cockatoo
stay with me for I love you
cockatoo, cockatoo

words by Francis Loring, music by George Breakfast 2003
