His Coat Of Many Colours

His Coat Of Many Colours

A Poem by Alan S Jeeves

A more cheerful, colourful, easy read. 5 quatrains from 1975

His coat has many colours,
Joseph is his name
Although some call him 'Joey'
It's Joseph just the same.

The collar on his cloak
Is such a vibrant red
From his shoulders to his pointy chin
It goes right to his head.

The nether of this robe
Has hues of greens and blues
From his chubby, rounded waist
To his rugged grey-black shoes.

His sleeves are speckled yellow
A dazzling golden shade
And silver sprays within the fold -
Delightful how they're made.

Bright scarlet and vermilion
Make threads of colourous joy
For, Joey is a parrot
And 'e's a pretty boy.

Ha, an unexpected ending Alan, in this colourful write. I expect that Joey knew how pretty he was and made sure that everyone heard about it. Certainly a cheerful write on a dull just about to rain Monday morning. I enjoyed your five quatrains from 1975. Have a good day.
