The Sorgum Cows

~ Written in January, 2003 ~

Aug 17, 2013

Last Saturday
The flakey Virginia January
Was muggy like a summer day
The sorghum cows chewed
And sprawled on the grass
Like a day at the beach.

Seven days later it is below 30 and snowing

The cows stand stunned
They are snow trimmed
Like tractors and trees

They stand still
Not moving not mooing
Like ceramic knick knack cows
Not blinking
Not eating
On a cold ceramic hillside
Enduring the weather
With no where to go.

Having a cow on our front page inspired me to excavate this old bit of verse - kkb

Kimmy Sophia BrownKimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember. She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.

She writes the column "From the Back Porch" as well as reviews of music in her column "MusicViews". Her goal in her music reviews is to introduce music she loves to people who may not have heard that particular artist or CD. For information about how to submit a CD for review, click here.
