Early Check from July 2014

Some thoughts came to mind while checking the bunch in the first hours of a summer morning.

Early Check

What a wonderful place for a cow to sleep
On the top of a hill at night,
In a soft, grassy bed
With her calf at her head
And a friend on her left and her right.

What a wonderful place for a cow to sleep
With the air smelling dewey and damp,
All the stars moving high
In their limitless sky
Shining softly down into her camp.

What a wonderful place for a cow to watch
Where the sky is down close to the ground,
And to know what has passed
On her ocean of grass
As the world made its half turn around.

What a wonderful place for a man to ride,
On a horse, on a hill in the dawn,
With the shadowy hues
Of grays and of blues
All in waves rolling on, rolling on.
