Bessie Was A Cow - Poem by Patti Masterman

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.
