The First Fruit (Well actually its a egg)

Today I was greeted by the first sight of a egg from my Red Star chickens which I have raised over the past five months. The best thing about this egg is that it means that countless dozens more are to come.

In marble walls as white as milk,
Lined with a skin as soft as silk,
Within a fountain crystal clear,
A golden apple doth appear.
No doors there are to this stronghold,
Yet thieves break in and steal the gold.
Now, my turn.
A box without hinges, key or lid
Yet golden treasure inside is hid
Let us give us a chance, my precious.
Eggs, it is!
Oh, bother!
-J.R.R Tolkien
