|The tracks of Elizabeth Barrett Browing
|After I did look looks at the clock, I did look looks out the front window. There are calf-tracks by our front door. These tracks are there because when I went walking with
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
on yesterday, I had her wait at the front step while I did go into the kitchen to get her some sugar-lumps. She has a
for sweet things. I think she will grow up to be a lovely cow. Her mooings now are very musical, and there is
poetry in her tracks
. She does make such dainty ones. When they dry up in the
, I dig up her tracks, and I save them. There is much poetry in them; and when I take her track out that I keep in the back part of the cook-table drawer, I look at it and think, this way passed Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
