A bevy of beauties
A bouquet of flowers
A brood of siblings

Of course we are talking of birds
Often referred to affectionately as ‘chicks’
Strutting their stuff
Attractive and elegantly garbed
An ostentation of beauty

The young women of today
Are there to be ogled at!
Appreciation of Providence’s
perfection in creation

For De's at d'Verse: Poetics -
poetry is for the birds

  1. Why did women become referred to as chicks anyway?

  5. Seems like I remember back in the 60s English men referred to women as "birds." I wonder how women became known by these avian terms!?

  6. Of course in Australia, they are called Shielas, in Chicago they're called Shorties, in Iraq they are silent & covered head to foot--don't get me started, Hank. I like the way you expanded the collective nouns to include angels.

  7. Really interesting. I didn't make the connection with women but it's true we are likened to birds. Very clever!
