Delight of Cows

Delight of Cows

written by: Elizabeth Barton



A happy company of cows
Catches deepening golden light,
Dappled patches maunder the field
A shifting picture as they graze,
Bronzed by the late gaze of the sun
Dressing their coats with baroque hue.

They’re here, by chance, most evenings,
An intriguing throng for my view,
Wrapped in green fields and changing trees
Or early dawn emerge from fog,
Perfect as haunting melody
Plays with memory when they’re gone.
