Saudatu Kabir

The Fulani Herdsman - Poem by Saudatu Kabir

He walks along cattle in front
Carrying a stick taller than himself
He talks to them as if they are friends
Confides in them
Sharing all his secrets with them
And they nod in agreement
To all he blabbers to them
He drinks along with them
From the same flowing river
They trust him to lead them
Where then grass is plenty
The Fulani herdsman never leaves his cattle
And they are forever faithful to him
And feed him milk from their udders
An emotional bond between cow and man
