A to Z on a Plate - J

It is Day 10 of the A-to-Z Challenge! #atozchallenge
It is Day 12 of the NaPoWriMo challenge. #NaPoWriMo
It is Line 12 supplied by Michelle at Today's Little Ditty in Irene Latham's Progressive Poem.
I totally forgot to link to Day 10: Pat at Writer on a Horse and day 11: Buffy at Buffy's Blog 
So check those out if you haven't already!
And I am also doing an image and a poem with Margaret Simon each day in April. #imagepoems
Busy month.  I know I'm forgetting something...BTW, at 12:04 AM I remembered I hadn't done my J poem... I've been sick since Saturday, so haven't slept much for three nights - two were sitting up in the living room.  So I wrote this one this morning at 1 AM while I had nothing else to do...

Step lively, my friend,
Prance light on your toes;
Sway back and forth, then
Strike a disco duck pose!
This dance on the farm
Is the grandest of reels,
So pick up the pace
And kick up your heels!
I'll whirl us and twirl us
Until we get dizzy,
Then we'll stop for a bit
for a sip of a fizzy.
Then more waltzing around 
before cows hit the hay
And the roosters announce
That it's a new day.
The pony and fox will
Trot round the floor,
While the hens funky chicken
And geese conga some more.
The hoppingest rabbits
won't stop bunny hopping
Till they hear the sound 
Of the milkman's horse clopping.
We'll dance till the stars
Start saying good-morn,
And the crows start eating
their breakfast of corn.
It's a barnyard of fun
for the turkeys and pigs,
For goats and for horses
and all who love jigs!
