Edgar Allen Poe, the Chinese Silkie rooster has departed the stage

edgar-allen-poe2and there will not be an encore


but we can remember the gentlemanly rooster and thank him for his inspiration 😍

silkie-chooksthe rooster crows,
foraging with his hens
savouring the field


march of the rooster,
feathered feet lift up high
with confidence rules
