Im a widow and I live on a farm with all my animals.
Once there was a widow who lived on a farm.
She had many animals.
Her most prized animal was her Rooster, Chantilcleer. "His voice Was merrier than the merry organ at the church"
Chanticleer had many hen wives
His true hen love was Pertelote.
One night Chanticleer was sleeping and had a dream that an "orange hound like beast" was going to kill him while he was in the yard. Pertelote was mad that he was letting the dream get the best of him so she went to get him some herbs.
