A New WorldPublished by GHC • Jun 23rd, 2011 • Category: Poetry

The lush green grass
cushions me when I fall.
I try to walk,
but my skinny legs collapse under me.
I gaze up at my mamma;
she is so tall.
I can see her red-brown coat
that she passed on to me.
When I finally stand,
she beckons me with a call.
I am so short,
I can easily get milk from below her.
The people put us in the same stall.
I know by everything here
that there are so many things to learn and do,
But there will never be enough time in the world.
