Today Katie asked me if we could get a cow. She wants to milk one. Seeing as how we won’t be having a cow any time soon, I had to tell her no. But it got me to thinking about cows and so I decided to post this poem that I found online just for her. Don’t you just love the internet?
It’s called The Cow by Robert Louis Stevenson.
The friendly cow all red and white,
I love with all my heart:
She gives me cream with all her might,
To eat with apple-tart.
She wanders lowing here and there,
And yet she cannot stray,
All in the pleasant open air,
The pleasant light of day.
And blown by the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
She walks among the meadow grass
And eats the meadow flowers.
