April 30th…“AS A CHILD, WHAT WAS ONE OF THE MYSTERIES OF ANIMAL LIFE ON YOUR FARM?”
POEM – “Ponder And Stare” by N. Elliott Noorlun
As a kid I’d smack, My head with a thud,
Each time a cow, Started chewing her cud.
My little boy brain, Would ponder and stare,
How could she be chewing,
With no food anywhere?
Standing close by, I’d hear a cow burp,
She’s then chewing slime, That resembled some “uurrp”!
She seemed contented, And pleased as pie,
But her invisible food, Confused this here guy.
It wasn’t till later, I learned she had four,
Separate tummies inside her, In which she could store,
Food for the now, And food to chew later,
And further in life, I’d learn something greater.
It wasn’t till later, In life I equated,
A synonym here, For the word “meditated”.
That we as believers, Should “chew” on God’s Word,
Over and over, To understand what we heard.
Just one of the mysteries, Back there on our farm,
As I learned to love life, And never found harm. 😉
