A Sweating Cow


                                                   through the farm
                                                   a sweating cow seeks her calf —
                                                   charcoal burns

    I smell a steak Ruben. Surely you wouldn't eat the poor little thing? I guess the season will soon be in full swing - bon appetite!

    Ruben, I know that you will use the Halibun in your work..I don't know if you can find a picture of a sweating cow though..I can remember as a child when daddy would take a calf to the market and how the mother cow would walk and low looking for her baby..It makes me sad even today to think of the sight and sound..Sara
