Cows aren't clumsy --
My cow is slender
And lovely as a deer.
She is beautiful
When she lifts her head
Suddenly, in fear,
Nostrils distended,
Drinking the scent
The wind has blown.
Then it is, she looks
Like something chiseled
From a dark stone.

Once I heard her call
Into the silence
Of a summer's night.
When morning came,
The look of her eyes
Was a shining light.
Oh, the soft look
And the still look,
As she turned her head
To the little form
Of her calf that lay
New-born -- and dead.
