Herefords - Poem by Cathe Ferguson

Face of quartz
Coat of clay
The Hereford nuzzles
The shade-fed May.
Curly cream icing
On shaggy brown cakes
Flow through the meadows
Into clear sapphire lakes.
A drawer of fleece collars
On red leather coats
Wade in the sunshine
Like jewels on green slopes.
Face of rare pearl
Soft ruby spine
Whipped cream and sugar
On strawberry kine.
Melting like snow
Down vinaceous-stained hills
The slow skewbald cow
Into a herd spills.
