Cock-a-doodle-doo

Now that I have been able to stay a little longer in bed this past week I noticed that I didn't even hear those typical Spring sounds of chilping birds early in the morning. The problem is that there is this cock crowing at the break of dawn and he keeps on going with his kukeleku (cock-a-doodle-doo). In a way he is driving us nuts for he crows in the middle of the night even when it is not a bright moonlit night.

We noticed this rooster crowing for the first time around Christmas but then our next door neighbours had put a bright shining star in the chicken house and so we could understand the rooster being of beat. But right now that star is gone and still he crows in the middle of the night and early at dawn. He even crows out of tune!

Well I really hope they aren't keeping him as a domestic cock for then he will keep on crowing at all kinds of impossible hours and he will keep me from hearing those wonderful sounds that belong to this season.

All around the town
People are fast asleep
Sleeping men and women
Sleeping boys and girls
Here comes the cocky rooster
To sound his daily alarm
"Cock-a-doodle-doo!
Wake up sleepy heads".
