Cows on Muddy Pastures

Wisconsin a place for cows
Aryshires and Holstein's
scratching the earth with good hooves
big beef tongues
sipping the cool night air
in a red barn of love
cows on muddy pastures
among barn cats
rodents and rats
often the farm is polluted
by strangers
and they are kicked out
of the land
need deep sand
on muddy pastures
the cowpies smell
of methane and intestines
but these are dairy farms
and clean as Cadillac cars
veterinarians come around
to make a living
from Aryshires and Holstein's here
and the cows on muddy pastures
seeking green grass
never a problem
as Mother Nature provides
good land to survive
cows on muddy pastures
cows on these muddy pastures
these farmers are milkers
not of cows
but of the earth
we need more milk
to help the children
and build a strong place
for those willing to work hard
in the mud of Wisconsin

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
