Artist's Description

A Poem by RestLeSsD

Old Mr. Pelican
He’s lived a great long life.
He’s survived many a storm,
He’s survived times of strife.

Old Mr. Pelican,
He sits & he contemplates.
Has his time finally come?
Is it death that he awaits?

Old Mr. Pelican,
He’s nearing his end of days.
His instinct sent him here,
No pull to the season’s flyways.

Old Mr. Pelican,
He knows his death is near.
He knows it’s natures way.
He does not fret nor fear.

This guy spent several hours sitting in this one spot on the beach. He stood up a few times as if he was going to leave but sat down, as if he was very tired. We came to the conclusion that he was either sick or was dying. He did eventually leave and we didn’t see him again so, hopefully he was just resting up for a long trip.
