Cattle in Trucks

Original Text: 
E. L. M. King, Fifty Country Rhymes for Children (Oxford: Basil Blackwell, n.d.): 10. 011645.g.117 British Library
1Poor cows, poor sheep,
2I weep, I weep
3To see you packed so tight;
4While nought you know
5Of where you go
6By empty day and night.
7Such noise, such heat,
8Such weary feet,
9No single thing you know.
10No rest, no grass,
11Only alas!
12Your friends as scared as you.
13I wish, I wish,
14O how I wish,
15That you could understand
16That all is well;
17You go to dwell
18In some far pasture land.
