The Old Black Rooster

The Old Black Rooster

This old black rooster roosts up in a tree.
He struts around the barnyard so carefree.
This kitty cat is always very nice.
She has a kitten that she shields from harm.
The cat is really good at catching mice.
The rooster crows each day out on the farm.
He struts around the barnyard so carefree.
This old black rooster roosts up in a tree.

The old black rooster crows at early dawn.
He causes Farmer Joe to wake and yawn.
The crowing starts before the break of day.
At night, the rooster roosts high in a tree.
Joe needs to milk the cows without delay.
The old black rooster crows but not on key.
He causes Farmer Joe to wake and yawn.
The old black rooster crows at early dawn.

(Note: Today’s poem,  a Lil Ann form, is based on a poem written by my sister, Yvonne Hall. The first line is from her creation. Not only is she a good artist, she could be a poet, too. The rooster in the photo belongs to our sister, Emma Jean.  This poem is reminiscent of our childhood on Banner Mountain.)
