The poem presents perfect imagery with a dash of humor. The illustration is gorgeous, capturing the focus of the penguin on his potential meal.
And as usual, I learned something from your notes. Win-win all around!

Boy, I have to get to the Central Park Zoo in Manhattan or the aquarium in Brooklyn before I can see a penguin. I see yours are coming for a formal dinner, dressed in their tuxedoes. Your poem is cute, and I love the fact that you use alliteration in all three lines.

    I feel so blessed to live in an area of such wildlife diversity. My city, Dunedin, is knows as the wildlife capital of New Zealand.

    It sounds like an incredible place. I hope I'll get to see it at some point. I've never been to that part of the world.

Hooray for a poem about penguins. I much prefer the tuxedo metaphor to the nun's habit. They are amazing creatures -- birds that don't fly, but swim instead. Thanks for the opportunity to read this.

This is a nicely written 5-7-5 poem. Sleek skilful swimmer dressed in dripping tuxedo. Dashing for dinner.
Cute photo to compliment your words. Well done.

You did a great job with your 575, Lisa. Your syllable count is correct per line, your painting is exquisite, and your message is clear. I like the good use of alliteration of s and d. I like the way you used 'dashing; to show two definitions of the word--moving quickly and looking smart all dressed up. Thanks for the informative notes, too.
Respectfully, Jan

I find your poem such a pleasure to read, and your author's note educational (two for one). Thanks so much for the education. I can not imagine living in a place where yellow-eyed penguins are in residence (I see a lot of robins and an occasional blue heron).

This is a beautiful poetic description of a Yellow-eyed penguin, incorporating the creative use of alliteration. I also love the artwork. Varied shades of blue are my favorite colors. Thanks for your informative author's note.

This poem reminds me of Penguin Island in Western Australia where fairy penguins breed. Every time I see one of those I feel they are running late for a formal occasion. Thanks for tje memory.

Those tuxedo dudes are always dressed for dinner, Jenny. When swimming
they look like they are dancing. Still, they become dinner for sharks, and some men like their meat and use their skins. I glad they are protected, they're beautiful to see in the sea dancing freely. :) Thank you for sharing.
