Susy Evelyne (Bristol)
Normandy Kine (a tribute to French cattle)
Normandy kine are very fine -
All dappled, whites and blacks.
And once they've eaten pastures green
They're flat out on their backs.
Written in 1985 by Susy's mother, Joan

Poet's Notes about The Poem
My mother wrote this in her diary years ago on a coach holiday in Brittany and Normandy. She chose the unusual old word - kine. It's so simple and silly - I love it! She wrote poems for fun and from the heart, to lift her spirits. It's wonderful to find her words and laugh years later.
