Just because it's National Poetry Day

Pastoral
by Ogden Nash

Two cows
In a marsh,
Mildly munching
Fodder harsh.
Cow's mother,
Cow's daughter,
Mildly edging
Brackish water.
Mildly munching,
While heron,
Brackish-minded,
Waits like Charon.
Two cows,
Mildly mooing.
No bull.
Nothing doing.


(More Ogden Nash here. Although I think allemande might particularly like this one.)
