    To The Cuckoo (for Cuckoos)
    with my apologies to William Wordsworth

    O Blithe New-bee! Or so I have heard,
    I hear thy newbness and rejoice
    O Cuckoo! Shall I call thee Bird, for lack of a better word
    Or but a wavering voice?

    While I am lying on the Couch
    The Complex Duplex shout I hear,
    From hill to hill it seems to be a Grouch,
    At once far off (complaints), and near (praise)

    Though babbling only to the Magical Glade
    Of Sunshine and of Singing Flowers,
    Thou bringest unto me your tale on the Everglade
    Of wasted hours.

    Three times welcome, you darling of the Host (BigPoint)
    Even yet thou art to me
    No Bird, but a Ghost,
    A voice, a mystery;

    The same whom in my off hour days
    I listened to; that Wail
    Which made me look a thousand ways
    In bush, and tree, and swale

    To seek thee did I have often drove
    Through woods and on the green;
    And thou wert still a dream, a love;
    Until this Quest, Never Seen

    And I can listen to thee yet; (How can we forget?)
    Again lying on the Couch
    And listen, Waiting for the Reset
    That golden time again to Slouch.

    O Blessed Cuckoo Bird! The earth we surmise
    BP once again appears to be
    Seemingly to be awarding a nice prize;
    That is fit in thy Inventory

    Bee Cuckoo's Story
    Why bee cuckoos were introduced to our farm?
    [​IMG]Rabbit-Eared Cowkoo: Ι can't take it anymore, it is so unfair. We can't live like this in other animal's pens. We need to be independent and have our own pen.
    [​IMG] Mustachioed Cuckoo: What happened? Why are you upset?
    [​IMG]: Rabbits are playing with us. Look what one rabbit did.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]Punkoo: Οh this is terrible! We need to do something! They can't just play with the rabbit-eared cowckoos like that. We should fight with these rabbits!!!
    [​IMG]: We have no chance to win if we fight. We can do something else. The regular cuckoos have no problem like this because the animals think that they are their eggs. This is what we are going to do to you Rabbit-Eared Cowckoo. You will not stay again with the rabbits but with the Bees!!!
    [​IMG]: How is that going to happen?

    [​IMG]: You will now look like bees eggs. Bees are good animals and they will accept you.

    Rabbit-Eared: [​IMG] How do I look?

    [​IMG]: You look like a bee egg! From now on you will be called bee cuckoo!!!

    One of my favorite cereals growing up was Cocoa Puffs. Their ads on TV featured a Cuckoo Bird!
    Cocoa Puffs is a brand of chocolate-flavored puffed grain breakfast cereal that was introduced in 1958.
    The mascot of Cocoa Puffs is Sonny the Cuckoo Bird, whose catchphrase is "I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!" was introduced in 1962.
    Sonny was crazy in his commercials and today would have been probably diagnosed with ADHD

    8)Cuckoo, oh cuckoo, you're driving me...mad!
    My search for you has been so, so sad..
    All day how I've searched for you - all night, too!
    In the distance I hear you teasing...coo-coo, coo-coo;
    "Come find me, find me if you can! Hehe!"
    I know who you are....you're the Bee,
    With your sharp calling sting -
    You mean, mean old thing!
    Your family, from egg to Punkoo, are with me-
    All but you, you crafty, elusive old Bee!
    Do, oh DO let me find you, sitting in another's nest.....

    Cause I'm EXHAUSTED and need some REST!!o_O

    Celtic legend cuckoo

    In Celtic legend cuckoo is said that at one point, the gods have decided to end the bustle of Tir-nan-Og (the land of eternal bliss) and earthly world. Probably had been thinking that too many mortals (heroes, Druze and others) spent too noisy, at times impossible, in their neighborhood, leaving him to mind their business and their eternal habits. However they have spoken to all of Tir-nan-Og, including all animals and birds, you have to decide where they wanted to live - the land of immortality times that of mortality and exchangers seasons of growth and decay .
    All creatures have chosen eventually. All except cuckoo! He thought, pondered, and still troubled, but could not decide. Gods probably beat him in the head, saying, "Come on! Hurry up! Not bargain for!" Probably not have found the place of impatience, and had even insomnia. I'm not sure, because I was not there, and he could not confess cuckoo to me everything that happened, but I think something like that happened.
    Poor cuckoo could not decide any nohow. Eventually, the gods told them he could not live without the beauty and magic of Tir-nan-Og could not draw either perpetuate the growth and change of the earth, but in no case will die. Confronts with such a dilemma, the gods have put their minds to work, and after a while, they took a decision.
    I have said so cuckoo, "Okay, you can continue to travel between the two realms, but you have to respect some conditions." The poor little heart was made cuckoo small, not knowing what awaited him.
    Gods continued, "First you have to agree to serve us as a messenger between the two worlds, bringing our messages to mortals."
    "Yes, very good, I agree," replied the cuckoo rushed and relieved. "I am honored to do this so your majestic lords."
    "That's not all!" have attracted the attention of divine beings. Cuckoo heart fell in my stomach, and felt that it takes to faint.
    "You can not make your nest anymore in any of the realms.'ll Have to let your eggs in the nests of other birds to hatch them or not, as they are wanted. For this reason you cursed, shame and blame . If you ever builds nest in any of the two worlds, you will be condemned to live only there, not to come back again in the other. "
    Well, when we humans say "never", this word usually means "until I change my mind" or "until I look", but when the gods pronounce it, it really means never. Poor Needle cuckoo was close to falling off the branch to the hearing this harsh sentence.
    "That means," he said, "I will not be allowed to feed my chickens and I care for them, to protect them and teach them to fly?"
    "Yes, it does," I answered ruthless gods.
    "That means you'll have to rely on the mercy of other birds to see my puppies good and healthy for the rest of their lives?"
    "I could not even we say better than that," exclaimed the gods.
    Cuckoo go ahead, and all state ... his wings fell apart trupsor inert, and his heart was beating so hard that it seemed to not have much until it breaks in two.
    After a while, he asked, "But that also means that my chickens and they will be free to fly in both realms for ever?"
    "Yes," the gods have spoken.
    "You swear this? There's no trick in the middle, not to ask me any other condition?"
    "Yes," repeated the gods, a bit confused, that really had been thinking about two or three tricks.
    So it made our cuckoo has chosen a career with an important mission to fulfill. Huge price paid for it, not having how to see, know, hranesca and caressing chicks feel proud seeing them flying for the first time. However, in exchange for the heavy losses have unimpeded possible to enter the world of eternity.
    Nowadays, many people believe that cuckoos go, along with other birds migrating to Africa before the arrival of winter, and were quite right to believe this. But on their way to warmer countries and to our land, they make a detour, and stop bit in Tir-nan-Og, where rest, refresh their spirit and take messages for mortals by the gods. Because of this, the spring, when they arrive cuckoos, is a time so full of magic and everything in nature grows so fast. They not only carry with them the divine message, but well hidden under their wings and bring a bit of atmosphere and magic of Tir-nan-Og in world growth but of destruction.
    At the same time, therefore their song is so sad. For the same reason, they say that it is better to hurt them a cuckoo or cuckoo egg.
    Also, because of this it is important to listen carefully, all the senses strained, when you hear the song of a cuckoo. Always, found in him a message from the gods to you.
