Dawn Chorus

Posted by CFMBabs , 27 March 2008 · 741 views

All is quiet down on the farm
Animals tucked in, safe from harm
Another day gone, dawn chorus will begin
No chance of sleeping, or a little lie in

The geese begin honking at dawn's early light
Flapping and scrapping, out breaks a fight
And I'm trying to sleep, I turn to the wall
If they don't move in a minute I'll neck them all

The goats begin bleating, the cockerel crows
Out through the window my hubby's slipper goes
The dog runs riot and makes off with the shoe
At least she'll stay quiet for an hour or two

All this commotion seems to wake the wildlife
The birds in the trees and the song is rife
I'm sure it's on purpose, just to make us mad
They do a good job -- not one good night I've had

The postman cries his woe at the gate
Not only the dog he's beginning to hate
The geese fly at him with heads to the floor
And he's running like mad away from the door

My mail ends up in the yard and often gets wet
How could he make a mistake or even forget
That if the dog doesn't get him, the geese surely will
I'm sure he remembers as he runs up the hill

A hiss from the window tells me he's gone
That gander's a mean and nasty one
And when the day's over I sit and reflect
I guess I'm quite lucky, if not perfect

To live in such a lovely place with so many good friends
But I wish they'd go to bed at night and call it day's end.
