Call? ~~ a Poem for Tuesday Platform

The cows will come

The cows will come
at farmer's call

Into the barn
each knows her stall

Brownie comes last
she's boss of all

The pigs come too
crowding their trough

Roosters don't come
'til lights go off

I'm not a cow
pig or goat's gruff

Still I come when-
ever you call

. - I'm linked with at The Tuesday Platform with the Real Toads in the Imaginary Garden.  This is an open forum time for us to post a poem of our choosing.  I wrote this one especially for today's posting.
. - The animal pictures were taken at the Vauxhall City Farm, at Vauxhall, Borough of Lambeth, London, U.K. (visit it here). Oh, yes, the top picture is on of the horses coming in from giving rides all day.  The cows weren't receptive to picture taking.  The resting Ducks were at a canal near Northampton. 
. - We took KP to the farm, she loved it.  A little scared of the geese, but even some adults are afraid of that.  If you visit London with young ones, take them there.  Also zoo at Regent's Park is very nice.  Admittance is free, both places.

It is such fun when one gets around with animals that don't bite! Thanks for sharing Dr Jim!

This made me miss my uncle's dairy farm in Wisconsin. He grew all kinds of things and it was the best when I was growing up.
