Magpie Tales #39

Picture courtesy of Willow at Magpie Tales.


In the morning and in the evening

He sings his song at the top of his lungs.

It sounds throughout the barnyard

waking the sleeping occupants.


He’s strutting his stuff for the ladies

hoping to gain special favors.

Sharing his food and dancing wildly.


The farmer and his wife yelling

for him to stop such a racket,

but all to no avail.

Now his morning call has led to Sunday dinner.



Thanks to Willow of Magpie Tales for providing this picture prompt.  Be sure to visit Magpie Tales for more poems and stories inspired by the picture.

  1. Ahhh, I get Magpie Tales now, having j come from Brian Miller’s post! You all write one one thing , but it comes out so differently. Duh, Jannie. Doesn’t take me long to catch on, does it? 🙂

    Rooster stew, I could go for that!


    • The rooster in my poem didn’t make it, but the three in my barnyard will never go into the pot! I was very happy to read your survivor poem! Thanks for stopping.
