The Well

Posted by Frank Obrigewitsch, SJ in Our Culture

The Well

The cattle mill around the well,

massive bodies and trampling feet.

White faced Lil pushes through

displacing younger heifers

and bosses the trough.

The calves stay at a distance

staring and wait.

I keep to the high pump platform

making the water flow

handle pumping up and down,

till all the beasts are gone.
