Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

You, little one, are better than me
By Julie Dickinson

Greater than me
More rightly placed
Than me

At ease with planet
Rhythms of nature

Bantam, Redcap, Silkie
Clucky lady
Beautiful Hen

A friend
Not battery made
Nor faceless creature

I have come to know you
You, have grown to trust me
I try to be worthy of it

You, little one, are better than me

safe happy Chicken
