    Dreams too easily shattered there Jim, who knows perhaps you were made for better things, all the best

    Brought a smile to my face. Don't count your chickens before they're hatched, though. Or put them all in one basket. -chuck (Report) Reply

    I thought she might have egged you on Jim, and let you have a crack at it. I adored chicks as a child too, we kept chicken then and they were always producing. A delight holding each fluffy bundle. they were wonderful.
    Good subject here, I enjoyed reading it.

    Poem does make one think about their own
    failed dreams of fortune and fame
