Maureen and the Hens

It’s dark outside,
I see a light:
Our neighbour’s lamp
Is shining bright.

She straps it to her head
And ventures to the shed.

In her robe and her boots,
She is creeping along,
And I wonder at first:
Am I seeing it wrong?

She raises the shutter
And the hens flutter out,
And perch on her person;
She protests with a shout.

She is covered in birds -
Not an inch to be seen -
And the fattest one sits
Like a crown on a queen.

Food saves the day;
Hens fly away.

The chickens peck
The food she leaves;
And Maureen cleans
Her mucky sleeves. *

* decided to keep it clean and say ‘mucky’, LOL

For Sheri’s rhythms contest, Rock me Round the Clock

    If this is true, you're very lucky. To look out your window and see sleeves so mucky. To know quaint delight to inspire insight. One is grateful to share in such wonderful fare. Wishing you Happy Holidays jack. Peace. :)
