I believe that Princess Peacock refused Prince Peacock's proposal because he was a bit vain: she decided he should be left alone. To think.
There he was, showing his...feathers. But he really felt lonely.
So, when you here the peacock chant, what you actually hear is "come back, come back".
Is Princess Peacock ever going to come back?
Still thinking about a happy ending...
(I took these pictures about two years ago in Long Island, NY, and always thought there was a story behind that, until I read Part 1 of this story by Andreas Susana's in Travelwriticus).
Thanks Andreas :)
