English term or phrase:don juan (in children mind)
I need to modification for children version for the poem below, but without change the basic meaning of the poem. Would you like to provide me with any suggestion or anything. Preferably focus on term of "don juan" and "mistress" but not limited on that terms. You could add images of the rooster and hen name in your country for example. Like "chaunticleer" for rooster or "lady pertolete" for hen. Many thanks
Far away over there ...
Starting the busy morning ...
iN RUSSIA, ROOSTER SCREAMS "ку-ка-ре-ку (KU-KA-RRE-KU`)"!!!!!
In Spanish they scream "QUIQUIRIQUÍ"

and French roosters say Cocorico!
In Germany they say Kikerikie!
and in Finnish kukkokiekuu!
In Dutch: Kukeleku
In Danish they say kykkeliky
In Taiwan they crow in the North "喔喔喔 (Wo-wo-wo!)" and in the South "咕咕咕 (Gu-gu-gu!)"

Mr. rooster says in Arabic “كُك كو كو كو (Kuk koo koo kooo)”

While here, the don juan crow "Ku ku ru yuuuk"
To encourage his beloved mistress to peck worms enjoying their wake-up wiggle
Provided with a pair of her ugly claws
For the sake of two of her darling baby chicks
tweeting to utter the messages of their tummies
Explanation: Same meaning, same reputation, but I imagine the recognition factor for English speakers is way better (many don't know Don Juan, but everyone knows Casanova). Even children should recognize it.
