The Cockerel and his Hens




                                        The cockerel sits perched
                                           High on the barn roof
                                         Head drooping, waiting--
                                     For the first light from heav'n
                                                    To crow.

                                          Them hens look furtively
                                          For the hidden crannies,
                                            To lay their wee eggs
                                      Leaving no trail, those places
                                           From my eyes obscure.


                                                     ``   ``   ``

    The cockerel and hens are so naturally protective as you paint this careful image of Mother Nature..your verbage in here is so strong...love the hidden crannies and the first light from heaven. Missing your wonderful poetry, Gauti, Love, Gwendolen

    I've had no experience with these birds Gautami, are they native to your region? Agape, Moses

    wow, it's been ages since you posted anything new, what happened, sweetie. NO wonder i have not commented to you lately. AS for the fireflies in my poem, those are metaphorical, they symbolize the lights of the town. Utah has no fireflies unfortunately. I miss those little bugs. I grew up with them in summer nights in Iowa!

    At the first crack of dawn here in the states, I am reading about these hens of yours waiting to crow....a wonderful poem to start the day, Gautami. Are these birds indigenous to your neck of the woods? Hope this day is a grrrrreat one. Gwendolen
