You, little one, are better than me

Greater than me
More rightly placed
Than me

At ease with planet
Ground
Soil
Rhythms of nature

Chick
Bantam, Redcap, Silkie
Clucky lady
Beautiful Hen

A friend
Endearing
Individual
Not battery made
Nor faceless creature

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

You, little one, are better than me

safe happy Chicken
