Djolan Analysis

Author: poem of Ellis Parker Butler Type: poem Views: 10

Soft was the night, the eve how airy,

When through the big, fat dictionary

I wandered on in careless ease,

And read the a's, b's, c's and d's!

But stop! What is this form I see,

Beginning with a hump-backed d?

I pause! I gasp! I falter there!

It is the djolan, I declare!

It is the djolan, wond'rous word!

The Buceros plicatus bird!

Ne'er, ne'er before had I the bliss

To meet a djolly word like this!

'Twas djust before my dinner hour --

Well, let the djuicy djoint go sour!

Djoyful I read. I djust must see

What this strange djolan word may be!

Ah! ha! It is a noun! A noun!

(A ''name word" as we say in town)

"E. Ind. The native name of the

Year bird." These are the words I see.

"A hornbill with a white tail and --"

The big book trembles in my hand --

"-- plicated membrane at the base --"

Ah, well-a-day! If that's the case!

"-- base of the beak, inhabiting --"

Oh! dictionary, wond'rous thing!

"-- the Sunda Islands ----" Where would we

Without our dictionary be?

"-- Malacca, e-t-c." That's all!

I let the dictionary fall.

I am replete. All is explained.

Knowledge (it's power) is what I've gained!

Soft was the night, the eve how airy,

I read no more the dictionary,

But Oh! and Oh! my heart was stirred

To learn the djolan was a bird!
