Poem: The Cow

Happy Spring!

Today is the Spring Equinox and the first day of spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. From now on the days will get longer, the weather will be warmer, flowers will bloom and animals will be born.

Spring is a time to watch nature as it reemerges from the cold of winter (in some parts of the world, at least).

I saw lots of new baby sheep (kids) and baby cows (calves) in the fields, as I drove from California back to Washington this past weekend.

I found this Jack Prelutsky poem (or tongue-twister) and wanted to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it!

Listen to me read it several times and then try to say it on your own.

The Cow

The cow mainly moos as she chooses to moo

and she chooses to moo as she chooses.


She furthermore chews as she chooses to chew

and she chooses to chew as she muses.


If she chooses to moo she may moo to amuse

or may moo just to moo as she chooses.


If she chooses to chew she may moo as she chews

or may chew just to chew as she muses.
