Teresa’s Farm

cats are meowing

begging for their daily milk

pink tongues lap from bowls

 

dogs bark, bark, barking

prowling the premiter

always on duty

 

lazy llama spits

ears tip back; ears perk forward

speaking to his mood

 

cow and ox both moo

silhouettes in the cornfield

searching for fodder

 

maa, maaa go the goats

bouncing, jumping and playing

kids are nature’s clowns

 

cock-a-doodle-doo

dancing and calling the hens

rooster in the coop

 

quacking to their hens

shaking curly tail feathers

drakes waddle along

 

loud screaming peacock

eyes growing on tail feathers

sightless, colorful

 

deafening honking

massive wings beating through air

gander, goose, gosling

 

farmer Teresa

tending to her animals

morning, noon, and night

  1. 100% delightful!!! This was one of the sweetest poems I have read in the entire day, Teresa!!
    Have a GREAT TIME with your 4-legged and winged friends… they seem like excellent company to have!

  2. A lovely write indeed, now I miss being on the farm again – with the exception of the chicken coop, I still have nightmares about cleaning those out…..

  3. Cute! We live with ducks, chickens and a peacock that came out of nowhere and has just stayed. And the community here have an orchard and very productive vegetable gardens. I’m a country boy at heart… London did my head in…

    Nice, Teresa

    Warm regards

  4. With all those creatures to take care of and watch it’s a wonder you have time for writing anything. I also liked the children’s rhyme feel and the quick thumbnail images, especially the peacock.
