Robert Louis Stevenson

A Child's Garden of Verses. 23. The Cow

The friendly cow all red and white,
    I love with all my heart: 
She gives me cream with all her might,
    To eat with apple-tart.

She wanders lowing here and there,
    And yet she cannot stray, 
All in the pleasant open air,
    The pleasant light of day;

And blown by all the winds that pass
    And wet with all the showers, 
She walks among the meadow grass
    And eats the meadow flowers.
