http://poemhunter.com/poem/the-cow-2/ Robert Louis Stevenson wrote this romantic poem about a red cow. Here is my changed poem, The original is down.

stevenson

The ugly farmer male and white,
I disgust with all my heart:
He takes my milk with all his might,
And also eats my calf.

I wander lowing here and there,
And eat his bloody hay,
All in the freezin’ open air,
The burning light of day;

And chilled by all the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
I walk among the meadow grass
And dream of wreakin’ powers.

Here the original poem of Stevenson.

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.

The portrait is of Stevenson. (thanks to wikipedia)
