Image of the week...

We long for the cows to come back in the spring...last week they came, around the stone fence to enjoy the pasture that lies to one side of our house.  Today, in honour of the cow, a poem...

The Cow

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 all the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
She walks among the meadow grass
And eats the meadow flowers.

-Robert Louis Stevenson

Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!!!

    I love cows. I can only imagine what it must be like having them around. Good times.

  3. Stephanie...I'll make you one for your birthday! Or perhaps after our moose sighting the other night, I could make you some moose dropping earrings??? (actually, I'm thinking sheep would be more appropriate for you, my knitty friend)..hehehe!!!
