“On This Day” Repost – A Poem about a Cow and a Wedding

You can find the original here, if you are so minded, or simply read on.

*************************************

 I milked the cow in the morning,
on the day that I was wed,
a daily chore I deemed worth doing,
which made me rise, extra early from my bed.

The comforting sound of chewing,
her flank so warm, and soft as silk,
rhythmic sounds of fluid streaming,
as the bucket filled with milk.

I leaned my head against my cow,
and gentle handed squeezed,
as in my head I said my vows,
repeated now with familiar ease.

I milked the cow in the morning,
of the day that I was wed,
and in contrast to her cream white milk,
I married in a suit of red.

  1. Lovely poem. And I milked that cow in the evening I believe! You did make lovely butter from her rich cream.

    1. I guess you did, and it was lovely butter. The postman milked her the next morning 🙂

    1. Thanks CJ. I expect she really didn’t give a moo, as long as someone milked her (my Mum did in the evening and the postman the next morning).

    1. He was a good guy. Don’t think he actually got much milk out of Hazel, but it was enough to last to the end of the day. 🙂 Still have the suit hanging in my wardrobe, still looks beautiful, still doesn’t fit me anymore 🙂
