Wisdom from a Hen's Coop

One can find wisdom in the smallest and most insignificant matters of life. Intelligence helps us to grasp deeper truths but many times so does common sense.

Everything Falls In the Right Place If...

Our hen has hatched twelve chicks
In the sunlight they look like burning wicks.
My children look at them with joyous wonder
And ask the oft- repeated eternal question.
What came first-- an egg or a hen?
Seeing a late comer peeping , pushing its leg
The say in chorus-“An egg, an egg!”

A bright girl quizzed, “But who laid the egg, say?
A hen , say whatever you may.”
Just then a cock crowed looking up yonder,
“But whence did the hen appear?
The question remains unanswered, my dear.
The Creator is the first, who made a hen.
The hen laid an egg, understand children?”

Every thing falls in the right place,
Everything has its beauty and grace,
If you know your Father and Creator.
You will find the meaning of your life,
Something even in chaos and strife.
Seek him with your able intelligence.
If you can’t, use common sense.
