Anonymous, in “Harvard Advocate”

WE stood at the bars as the sun went down
  Beneath the hills on a summer day;
Her eyes were tender and big and brown,
  Her breath as sweet as the new-mown hay.
 
Far from the west the faint sunshine        5
  Glanced sparkling off her golden hair;
Those calm, deep eyes were turned toward mine,
  And a look of contentment rested there.
 
I see her bathed in the sunlight flood,
  I see her standing peacefully now,        10
Peacefully standing and chewing her cud,
  As I rubbed her ears—that Jersey cow.
