|A new baby calf
house of Elsie
I did go to talk with
Michael Angelo Sanzio Raphael
. He does so understand. All troubles that do trouble me, I do talk them over with him. While I was telling him all about how the angels did make a mistake and did bring
baby to the house of Elsie, I did hear a little voice. It was a baby voice. It did come from the barn. I went in to see. It wasn't in the haystack. It seemed to come from a way below. I slid down to the manger of the
gentle Jersey cow
. I thought she was in the pasture, but there she was in the barn. And with her was a dear new baby calf. When I did ask the ranch folks when it was brought, they did say it was brought in the night last night. I have thinks the same angel that did bring the new baby to the house of Elsie did bring also in her other arm that baby calf to the gentle Jersey cow. Tonight I will pick it out a name from the books
Angel Mother and Angel Father
did write in. Early in the morning I will go again to the house of Elsie.
