One Flew Over the Cuckoo

One Flew Over the Cuckoo

cuckoo bird by Belen Soto, poetry Brad Volz

Charlie the Cuckoo

another day in paradise

happily flitting and flopping

no flying for this crazy old bird

but he sure knows how to play


come close and he might kiss your cheek

or peck your derriere!

you never know with Charlie

he’s one flew over the cuckoo


I was way overdue for play, so I created a fun poem to go with the delightful art of Belén Soto. Her playful ceramic characters never fail to warm my heart and bring a smile to my face. Explore Belén’s website for a dose of fun and sunshine!
