Treasure Island

Patti Masterman


Bessie Was A Cow


Bessie was a cow,
Flower was a goat;
Two better friends
You would never know.

Bessie trimmed the grass,
And Flower ate the weeds;
A pair of better gardeners
You would never need.

Wherever Flower went,
Bessie went there too;
If Flower ate some clothes,
Bessie watched with rue.

If Bessie ate some hay,
Flower ate some clover-
If one passes heaven,
They'll both get over.

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 »
