Precious Persistence in the Pasture

Precious Persistence in the Pasture

Caring Completely

Coming into her own private sunset after majestic moments,

A mistress magnificent of the mossy meadow,

Red and royal beauty in the patchwork posse of the back pasture –

Instead of groaning in the grass or strolling off to solitude,

Never complaining, the majestic mom

Guards with her heart the younger members all around.
