Bull bawling with hope For the new dawn’s feeding trough Calling for kindness ~ Hay, yellow and dry Covers the barn floor with hope For fresh times within ~ Chickens pecking dust Crowing echoes in the morn Through signs of the sun ~ Pigs oink in their pen Craving the food that sustains Nourishing their dreams ~ Cow pouring white milk While the calf longs for the tit Butter and cheese thoughts

Gina, you are obviously from the midwest. Iowa? Kansas? Missouri? Illinois? Nebraska? Please come clean. I recognize another country woman when I read one.

Hi Caren... I'm from the Western NC mountains but live on a small hobby farm there. We milk a cow, gather eggs, etc. etc. It's such fun and I really love this country life. Love to you and blessings too!!!

This is wonderful and wondrous, Gina! How about this as the opening page of an enchanting children's book? I'm serious. This is 'bang-on,' as my friend-poet Tom Cunningham would say. Warmest wishes, Gershon
