Poetry Friday: Fowl Search

The search-engine query "What is chicken poetry?" sent at least one reader here recently, and that's a question I wish I could answer. It's almost in the "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" category.

Meanwhile, here is a favorite kids' work that mentions our feathered friends: "Last Night I Dreamed of Chickens," by Jack Prelutsky. Enjoy.

Today's Poetry Friday roundup takes place at the blog Big A, little a.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

--He heard that Susan was reading chicken poetry on the other side.

Did you see those cute hen rugs over at BB-Blog?

No! I must see them. Thank you very kindly.

What is chicken poetry? That question is worth an introspective blog post in itself. Maybe it's the next contest?

Ha! Maybe together we can figure out what chicken poetry is, yes? Thanks for stopping by the coop, Sara and Alkelda.
