June is a time of drifting feathers
Falling groundwards, to and fro
Softly as dreaming clouds
Under-downs, built for warmth
Cosy vests fluffed and full
Also fine for staying cool.
Others, mightier also swing
That can bear their wearers thousands of miles
Refreshed – but not remastered
This year’s model the same as the last
A winning style from the distant past.
Waterproof, windproof, 100% breathable
Can’t be improved – totally reliable.
Ergonomically sleek, fitted and fine
To ride the winds and scoop the air
To tuck in neatly when at rest
Enfold their children in the nest
Clearly defining type and form
For birds, of course, a classic norm.
No carbon emissions, no pollution
For a bird in the air – an easy solution.
