(5 December 1830 – 29 December 1894 / London)

A White Hen Sitting

A white hen sitting
On white eggs three:
Next, three speckled chickens
As plump as plump can be.
An owl, and a hawk,
And a bat come to see:
But chicks beneath their mother's wing
Squat safe as safe can be.

by Christina Georgina Rossetti
