I have a gentle cock.

Marvellous title for a 15th Century poem/lyric.

I had no idea anyone would be so enamoured of a farmyard fowl.

I Have a Gentle Cock

I have a gentle cock,
Croweth me day;
He doth me rysyn early,
My matyins for to say.

I have a gentle cock,
Common he is of great;
His comb is of reed coral,
His tail is of jet.

I have a gentle cock,
Common he is of kind;
His comb is of red coral,
His tail is of inde.

His legges ben of azure,
So gentle and so small;
His spores are of silver quite,
Into the wortewale.

His eyen are of crystal,
Lokyn all in amber;
And every night he percheth him
In my lady’s chamber.

About Phoenix

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the tings I am learning online.
