Ode to Goats- Sara Castillon

Ode to Goats- Sara Castillon

Capra aegagrus hircus, also known as goats

They have rectangular amber eyes

They have long coarse dark fur

Every cry sounds like a child screaming

They make me laugh 

When they make a strange face

Goats make me feel ecstatic 

As they bounce and gallop around the place

Up the side of a mountain 

Around the the silver trees

It looked at its surroundings

So many things to see

I watched with pleasure 

As it scavenges for food

And finds its treasure 

It looks up, clearly in a good mood

To me it looks, and nods

Then it picks up its stem and trots away

It looked so unflawed

As this mythical beast of the mountains heads for home
