Jigsaw Cows come out to play
The farmer needs you for his hay
The bull is here for your big day
Jigsaw Cows come out to play.
Jigsaw Cows are black and white
They stand so high they block our light
Jigsaw Cows aren’t left alone
We steal their milk for all our homes.
Jigsaw Cows some walk in pain
They lie in grass to forecast rain
Each day times two they walk the lane
A living, breathing, winding, train.
Jigsaw Cows have big grey eyes
They blink and wink to our surprise
Pink noses shine as if aglow
Long tongues lick lips up to their nose.
Jigsaw Cows we all love you
We see you grazing in the dew
The day will come when all will know
Jigsaw Cows, God made, His humour in their skins to show.
From the immortal pen of Richard Talbot Tully
With many peaceful blessings
