THE ROOSTER'S ROSARY
                                
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be,
I pray and walk the barnyard day and night,
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be,
I tell my beads and pray that all is right.

        Our Father starts a Joyful Mystery,
        I walk the fence and then walk back again,
        Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be,
        So God will bless young pullet, chick and hen.

Next come the Mysteries Sorrowful and Dark,
With each Ave  I'm mourning with the Christ,
While, bishop-like, I stroll with head held high,
So dignity is never sacrificed.

        As Glorious Mysteries rise within my heart,
        With open beak I cockle-doodle-do!
        Declaring resurrection time for sleepers,
        To rise, as from the dead, and live anew.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be,
I end my rosary in the dawning light,
One hundred fifty "psalms" that honor Mary,
And keep away the foxes of the night.




from the forthcoming book Prayers of 100 Animals A to Z, by William Cleary
