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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
