    feasting on every green moment
    till darkness calls,
    and with the others
    I walk away into the night,
    swinging the little tin bell
    of my name.

    great expression

    great 10+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++(Report)Reply

    i think this poem is about a cow waiting in a pasture for someone carrying a bucket of " foamy white light" ...milk?
    Maybe it's to mark the anniversary of when he/she was born? ? ?
    I don't know, it's a very obtuse poem.(Report)Reply
