Spring stampede too slash two

green meadows and blue ditches
sunlight colored  cloudless sky
calender says its spring too 
stage for cow dancing

the herd of cows can not wait
their mooing is deafening
black and white spotted cow mass
ready to rock and roll

a pack of black and white 
is conquering fields of green
jumping, dancing and kicking
cows got talent too

(C) Elly Wouterse

PS.
In the Netherlands , on the first official Spring-day, it has become, since a few years, again,
a kind of annual happening to 'free' the cows' after all winter being in their cow houses. 
Schoolchildren (whole schools and - or  classes) are invited by farmers in the area to stop 
by and watch the cheerful cow-dace-events... 
(PS battery of camera empty............ggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr  - won't happen next year)

    I wish I could see the cows dance there. I once had a pet cow named Bambi. She was so beautiful and smart.

    this is TOO cute. Cow dancing. Sure better than that crazy custom in the midwest: cow tipping!! I am growing so in love with your country by reading your poems of it. I am a little jealous because I wish I lived there.

    You made my day(morning) by commenting the way you did. You found something to relate to... This poem is probably(most likely) not a literary, poetical and/or  linguistic masterpiece but it but it got to you in a way that also moves me. TY Andrea for commenting like THIS. LOL Elly

    Yes.. It was.. I could not believe there are children who are really surprised that a cow produces the milk and not some factory......... It was a delight to watch the cows too.. and write about it. I'm so pleased you like my poem and took the time to comment. Dutch Greetings. Elly
