ALL GOATS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: All goats have a wild-brier grace
Last Line: Satiric eye.
Alternate Author Name(s): Beston, Henry, Mrs.
Subject(s): Goats

ALL goats have a wild-brier grace
They are as elegant as thorns
With little bells beneath their chins
And pointed horns.

So quick are they upon their feet,
So light and gaily do they prance
Their hoofs seem sportive castanets
To which they dance.

And as they raise sagacious heads
Disturbed by some crude passer-by
They gaze upon him with a most
Satiric eye.
