Interestingly, your parrot specifications follow Tcl's syntax,
so it's very simple to make a complete parrot parser in tcl.
Stick these lines in  front of your parrot file and run it
through tclsh.  Modify the "puts" commands appropriately
and you will have the front end you need.

# parrot parser
proc window {name title cmds} {
    puts "window: $name"
    eval $cmds
}
proc menubar {cmds} {
    puts "menubar"
    eval $cmds
}
proc menu {name cmds} {
    puts "menu: $name"
    eval $cmds
}
proc menuBar {cmds} {
    puts "menuBar"
    eval $cmds
}
proc menuItem {name label} {
    puts "menuItem: $name"
}
proc colLayout {cmds} {
    puts "colLayout"
    eval $cmds
}
proc rowLayout {cmds} {
    puts "rowLayout"
    eval $cmds
}
proc label {label} {
    puts "label: $label"
}
proc button {name label} {
    puts "button: $name"
}
proc radioButton {name label} {
    puts "radioButton: $name"
}
