On the Twelfth Day of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas

My farm-sit tasked to me . . . 

Chickens a clucking . . . 

Harmonizing chickens a cooing . . . 

Brown and white eggs to gather . . . with a little help from my friend . . .

Three guineafowl a chirping . . . 

Four ducks a waddling . . . 

A goose sporting a ducktail . . . 

Two geese a swimming . . . 

Two brotherly cats . . . 

Two Turtle Doves . . . huh? They're not turtle doves!

And a partridge in a pear tree!

All I want for Christmas is another snowy morning on the farm . . . 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone, from 25 miles west of the nation's White House :)
