I climbed a fence to pick a flower,
Then stopped to look around.
It took me 'most a quarter hour

    I love this poem, especially as I've had my own scary encounters with cows and bulls. You've inspired me again, thank you, thank you. (Report) Reply

    A very fine poem, Adeline, and particularly interesting to me as I had a similarly terrifying experience crossing a field one day! I never did find out the gender of that beast. (Report) Reply

    Such an exciting read! I've only come in contact with bulls from the other side of the fence luckily lol.
    This should be featured!

    Yes I love this poem and I too grew up in the country and had the experience many times as a child, it brought a smile to my face. (Report) Reply

    loved it... I was there! had the pleasure of growing up in the country during summers... lesson learned, stay on other side of the barbed wire fence! (Report) Reply

    What a great poem. You had me on the edge of my seat. Some years ago, I was at a county fair in New Hampshire, and a bull got loose. You could feel the ground tremble as he ran. People were laughing about it, but I was terrified. I grew up in Chicago, where the biggest animals were stray dogs. There were no casualties, but reading your poem brought back the memory of that day. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
