A Dairy Tale
The cow is a mammal and it is tame.
It has six sides; right, left, fore, back, an upper and a below. At the back it has a tail
on which hangs a brush. With this it sends flies away, so that they will not fall into the
The head is for the purpose of growing horns, and so that the mouth can
be somewhere. The horns are to butt with. The mouth is to moo with. Under the cow hangs
the milk. It is arranged for milking. When people milk, the milk comes, and there is never
an end to the supply. How the cow does it I have not yet realized, but it makes more
everytime we take away some.
The cow has a fine sense of smell. One can smell it far away. This is
the reason for the fresh air of the country.
The man cow is called an ox, and it is not a mammal. The cow does not
eat much but what it eats, it eats twice so that it gets enough. When it is hungry it moos, and when it says nothing, it is because all its
inside is full up of grass.
