Lucy. 2004-2011


A Poem for Lucy

You arrived a ball of fluff
so indiscernible from the soft peeping mass
But not for long, my cheeky girl.

A red-feathered beauty with a soft spot for me
And for you, the same place in my heart
Still there, sweet Lucy, after all these years.

  2. We can call them "dumb clucks" when they frustrate us and don't do what we want, but doggone it, some of the little feathered buggers have personalities that steal straight into our hearts. Hugs for you and remember what a wonderful life your long-lived Lucy had.

  5. Thanks, everyone. Lucy had a long, productive life and was my sidekick. I don't think she was interested in participating in another winter. Can't say that I blame her. She was a sweet girl.
