Country Girl

Aunt Elsie’s Cows

Green field curtains
With black and white
Jerseys grazing
Framing the windows
Reminding Aunt Elsie
Of her Michigan home.
Those gentle, big-eyed
Calves that sucked
Your thumb and gazed
Through those long black fringes
While kittens rubbed
Figure eights between
Your legs in the
Sweet smelling,
Barn on the hill.
