A New Glass Rooster Comes Home to Roost


Remember the story of Chanticleer, the beautiful, fierce, and proud rooster in the Nun's Priest Tale, a story within Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales?

Chaucer was a Middle English poet who lived a long, long time ago.  His Chanticleer dominated the barnyard as well as seven lovely hens who adored him.

(The name Chanticleer is also spelled Chaunticleer.)


The rooster had some lessons to learn in life and learn them he did!

Well, a new rather large and handsome glass rooster has come home to roost at our house.

He's about a foot tall.


During a recent stop at a Goodwill Store, he was spotted sitting on a table across from the cash register.

After making a purchase of several items, I had to wait and see if there would be enough money left to buy the rooster. Luckily, there was.


So, he was aptly named Chanticleer but there are no lovely hens around here for him to croon over.


He is simply king of the kitchen table!

I only know that they crow to wake up the farmers in the morning. Enjoy your new purchase. He is very colorful.

I know nothing about roosters.

I do know in our church we have an Emmaus weekend - and the symbol is that rooster of many colors. De colores.

What a pretty glass rooster. You can see all the pretty details in his feathers. It looks lovely on your kitchen table, Susan. I've always loved roosters, and have been looking for a BIG charming one for my kitchen. I haven't found just the right one yet.
