Haikus and Hens

Megan Roisin & poemBank Holiday Sunday veered between watery sunshine and very wet rain – but was filled with poetry.

Here are sisters Megan (9 years old) and her sister Roisin (5 years) holding an Acton Scott Poetry Postcard on which Megan has written and decorated her Haiku for Hens.  A group of lovely Leghorns were actually climbing into the Shepherd Poet’s Hut as we worked.

With almost no input from me except enthusiasm and an interesting discussion on the colour of eggs, Megan wrote:

Leghorns ginger brown
scratching on the dusty ground.
Their eggs not quite white.
