First Line: I shall go among red faces and virile voices
Last Line: Whose laughter plays like summer lightning there.
Alternate Author Name(s): Macdiarmid, Hugh
Subject(s): Cattle


I SHALL go among red faces and virile voices,
See stylish sheep, with fine heads and well-woolled,
And great bulls mellow to the touch,
Brood mares of marvellous approach, and geldings
With sharp and flinty bones and silken hair.

And through th' enclosure draped in red and gold
I shall pass on to spheres more vivid yet
Where countesses' coque feathers gleam and glow
And, swathed in silks, the painted ladies are
Whose laughter plays like summer lightning there.
