an illustration of grass
Sasha Williams

For blade of grass coming from the Earth
For the cow what is it worth
Oh, just to be part of the chain
But how would it work without any rain
Wet grass is the best of foods
Say can you tell by the goats wiggling of his tail
For the birds love of the grass seeds
And how would it be if you were an oak tree
Tall and strong
With no grass to catch your leaves
As they fall
Sounds right to me
No shoes on my feet
As the grass touches my toes
For no one knows
Just how old that blade of grass could be
Living under the old oak tree
