A Buffalo Sighting


I saw a Buffalo one day
An animal that is so immense
I was walkin’ along the road
And suddenly I grew extremely tense

I thought I’d keep on walkin’
Perhaps he wouldn’t even see
If I was on the other side of the road
Maybe he wouldn’t notice me

I slowly crossed the road
But the closer he became
I thought of many escapes
But they all were pretty lame

Then he stopped completely still
I froze right where I stood
He slowly turned his massive head
And then I understood

Here came another Buffalo
Who obviously was a lady
Walking kind of anxiously
And by her side was a baby

He started then toward them
And much to my surprise
He greeted them so lovingly
Right before my eyes!

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
