Random Poem:

Red Carnations

He stands in his pen
with a seamingly never full stomach.
Grass he likes
even paper bags containing feed
childrens gloves,
he's even tried fingers.
But he has a dream
If only!
If only he could get passed
round, over, under the gate
to the garden beyond
the pretty flowers so inviting
colours alluring
dreaming of eating
eating red carnations by the dozen
