Burren Cows

On the subject of bad weather
the red rough Burren cows are sage:
if only to say that
in wind like this
     that drives the rain     like a whipping
you must pull together,
               haunch to haunch,
                    and bow your heads
                         and be.
               That simple.
Bow your tufted heads
