Perhaps the poem is by Edgar Guest called 'On goig home for Christmas' it is very sad and unfortunately very true

Here's the Lost Heifer. The author is A. Clarke. A very nice poem, indeed.
he Lost Heifer
When the herds of the rain were grazing
In the gap of the pure cold wind
And the watery hazes of the hazel
Brought her into my mind,
I thought of the last honey by the water
That no hive can find.
Brightness was drenching through the branches
When she wandered again,
Turning the silver out of dark grasses
Where the skylark had lain,
And her voice coming softly over the meadow
Was the mist becoming rain.
by Austin Clarke
