September 27, 2020



I also want to revel in the “unadulterated cowness” of myself. Viva la bovine!

I'm so glad you like it, Jiwon. It's a favorite of mine.

A great poem! It says it all so perfectly. Ar fheabhas!

And thanks for that great photo of the cows in Cork.

A wonderful poem. I loved it!

So delightful. I feel transported to that stone wall and field.

I'm glad you did!

Glad you liked it, Karen

Loved the quiet, Irish, cottage greenery of the mood this brings. And the appearance of the cows themselves was fabulous!

Maureen, mo chara, I agree---Cows are fabulous.

Good one. Brings us back to the normal world of living things, living in harmony and appreciation of the other. Thank you for this selection, Terry.

Ah, yes. the world as it once was. Glad you liked the poem, Beth.
