He met her in the meadow
When the sun was low.
They strolled along together
In the twilight after glow.
She patiently waited until
He lowered all the bars.
And her soft bright eyes
Beamed upon him as
Radiant as the stars.
Yet she neither smiled nor thanked him
For she knew not how
For he was only a farmer
And she was a jersey cow.
