“Small head, and strong and lofty neck,
Hooked beak, and bold large eye;
His breast, and back both broad and flat,
Short round and lusty thigh;
With strong clean shanks, and tapering toes,
And strong tail carried high.
“Wings that are powerful, large and long,
Thin sharp spurs, set on low;
And lofty mien that indicates,
Desire to meet the foe.
“In hand so hard, and strong, yet light,
Balanced in every part;
Belly and fluff he’s next to none,
Yet amply plumaged too.
“That glows and glistens in the sun,
With many a beauteous hue;
While every action shows a grace, agility, and pride,
And courage that will last as long as flows life’s ebbing tide,
As it has shown in countless sires of ancestors beside.”
Herbert Atkinson, October 24, 1913
