Mother Cow

Written by Sloane Weldon, Feb 2005 (age 9)


Mother Cow, teach your calf well.

Mother Cow, do not be harsh on your calf.

Be sweet and kind.

Teach him to play and frolic.

Mother Cow, be tender.

His skin is as soft as silk.

He is smaller than me.

Oh, Mother Cow, teach him no hardness.

Teach him no fear.

Teach him kindness.

Please, Mother Cow, comfort and warm him.

Mother Cow, teach your calf well.
