Bring Home the Cows



Delta Cows by Lowell Herrero



Bring home the cows. The day is done.
Driven by one
man with a stick.
Move cows! Be quick.

White swans glide on the other way
aloof and gay.
As cows hoofs pound
a weary sound.

On grass along the clear blue lake
where swans partake
in joyful glee
cows never see.

  2. Thanks, Scot. There's just something so whimsical about that picture, I had to do something with it, but nothing too serious.

  3. Bring home the cows, the day is done? Not quite. First comes the feeding and milking of said cows . . . I remember when the milking was done by hand . . . followed by the straining into milk cans which must be placed into a cold bath, followed by cleaning and sterilizing the milking equipment, after which, in summer, the cows are returned to the pasture. Then and only then was the day "done".

  4. Sounds like a wonderful nursery rhyme to me Jo. Did I ever tell you I sing to the cows over here. They come up and just look at the crazy lady singing! :)

  5. So Mary milks the cows and Jo sings to them. I feel like I'm missing something in the great "cow experience." I just thought they went moooooo.
