This morning when I looked out my window
they were the first thing I noticed.
I saw them flocking outside my house.
I like to look at them from the back window.
I get the sun there. Yes, I wondered
why we were having hens but now I see.
Some people don’t have much to say
but if you put a hen on their knee it brings them to life.
I’m not fast on me feet. I have bother with me eyes.
Everything seems to go downhill.
I’ve got friends that can’t get out.
I would go back to when I was younger.
I try not to think about dying.
I’ve made no plans for dying. I haven’t paid for anything.
I’d be terrified if they made a mistake.
I do love everything about living though.
I love being able to hear even though I wear hearing aids.
I like to look out me window and see the leaves
like a blanket on the ground. I love the autumn.
I love the hens.
I couldn’t imagine life without them.
They’re everything to me.
