I am linking up again this Friday with Amy. I enjoyed last
week getting new visitors and visiting people from Amy's links.
I hope that you can go visit some of the ladies and their lovely farms.
I speak for myself when I say, I love the simpler life that being around
any kind of animals gives to this busy world. I do love Amy's animals.
It would be hard to pick but I do have a certain fondness for those donkeys.
This is just a picture of my little flock of Bantams.
I have learned so much from my chickens. But, I love
this little poem I found when I first got chickens and
it still fits. Have a good Friday.
Today as I linked to Amy, the author of this poem stopped by
to tell me it was hers. She is linking today too. She has a lovely blog,
I hope you can go by and visit her lovely blog and I am so thrilled to meet
someone whose poem I have loved so long.
All I need to know in Life
I learned from my Hens.
by Michaele Oleson
Wake up early, stay busy,
rest when you need to,
But always stay alert.
Visit your favorite places
Scratch out a living.
Routine is good.
Plump is good.
Don't ponder your purpose in life
your brain is too small.
Accept the pecking order and
know your enemies.
Weed your garden.
Protect your children fiercely
sit on them if you need to.
Take them for walks,
Show them little things and
Make a nice nest.
Share it with friends.
Brag on your
Don't count your chicks
before they hatch.
Protect your nest egg.
Test your wings once in a while.
Squawk when necessary.
As you age, demand respect.
Leave a little something for
those who care about you.
