Carl:
You were my first male pigeon
and with you I was very smitten
Then one day you took to the air
All I could do was cry and stare
I hope you're okay in this big wide world
In November Carl got out of his coop and I haven't seen him since. :(:( =**[

Brooke:
Brooke, my little girl all white and red
I can't ever get you out of my head
You lived with me for alomost two years
And for you I shed many tears

Brooke had to be put to sleep on July, 14, 2009.

Hi there, I liked your poems but Im very sorry about your loss.

It would be great if there were more pigeon poems written by people.

Those are lovely tributes to your pigeons. Thank you so much for sharing. And there are other pigeon poems...a friend of mine has written some for birds he's lost and I wrote one myself.

My First Poem: Pigeons

One of my first poems was uncovered in a recent clearout. I was probably about six when I wrote this. As you can see, I already had the idea of non-rhyming poetry. Sort of.

An untitled poem about pigeons (click for fullsize):

Pigeon Poem

On the back, more pigeons:

More Pigeons

What it says:

I like pigeois do you?
flying in a vaes. my mum
like pigeois do you? evey pigeoi like
pigeois

For extra hilarity, note that the teacher corrected the last instance of 'pigeoi' by adding an s to make it a plural. The rest was apparently okay.

Translated into English:

I like pigeons, do you?
Flying in a flock. My mum
likes pigeons, do you? Every pigeon likes
pigeons!

I didn't know what an exclamation mark was, but if I had, I'd have used one. Vaes really does mean flock. When confronted with a word I couldn't spell, anything could happen.

I hope you like pigeons too!
