    She is the Queen, she rules the roost
    She really is amazing
    She flies to her perch way above
    The place where fools are grazing

    Above them all, she preens herself
    Her fans, she knows, demand it
    And when they don't bow down to her
    She simply cannot stand it

    She bucks and clucks and flaps her wings
    It's really quite amusing
    She loves to win the masses over
    She cannot abide losing

    Although she tries to act a friend
    She really is a bully
    And someday, when the time is right
    She'll understand that fully.

    The blue hen saw the coop one day
    The hens inside were squawking
    They seemed to be a cheerful group
    So she went in and started talking

    The other hens ignored her
    They didn't seem to care
    About her thoughts and feelings
    Or what she had to share

    And so she just squawked to herself
    And still they couldn't stand it
    They asked her to stop clucking
    One even dared demand it

    But this blue hen would not be stilled
    She really cannot cease
    She'll fly up to the rafters
    And she will be at peace

    Quote:Thank you. You have to watch calling encore- I will do one.

    A sound was heard from far away
    It came across the sea
    A lovely lady spoke to say
    Some kindly words to me

    She's always seemed the better sort
    The kind that's always sweet
    She never makes meanness a sport
    She's happy and complete

    I love to read the things she says
    She really is quite witty
    I can sum her up one way
    Inside and out , she's pretty.

    Such great poems!

    The first one reminded me of my Petunia. She is the boss of the yard. I'll never get babies out of her, because she has the 2 roos completely cowed! [​IMG]

    The second one reminds me of my mix. She really doesn't fit in, and she doesn't care. She wanders around by herself, and roosts far away from the others. I worry about her, but she seems happy.

    The last one...well, what can I say? [​IMG] Great tribute to a great lady! [​IMG]

    You definitely have a wonderful gift! [​IMG]

    The thing I love about poetry is that it can mean so many different things to different people.
