The New Cow


    The new cow came though the gate,
    and her calf came after, a little late.


    No longer willing to be led,
    the calf went on ahead,

    while she stood to look around
    over the hills and lower ground

    stood shyly, defiantly there,
    smelling flower-fragrant air,

    and gazed toward the old cows
    grouped on the way before.


    Knowing not how she might stay
    among them, stranger still,

    she hesitated yet, now they had turned
    at the foot of the hill

    and seemed to wait for her at the gate,

    to wait for her who was strange and thin,
    till she came on,

    and they opened their ranks
    to take her in.

August Derleth
