Weaning Time

Weaning Time
Ewes on one side 
Lambs on other
Constant blaating!
Mamas calling their babies
Babies frantically calling back
Echoes back and forth
Night is still 
All but the sound of the bleating  
every now and then
into the silence of night
Until tomorrow
when all is quiet 


  1. A necessary evil that would break my heart every time. I'm happy to miss out on that aspect (and a few others, let's be honest) of farm life. But it does mean spring is arriving...right?

  2. OH man! I never even considered the fact that farm animals are weaned! Poor babies. Hopefully it's over soon and they can move on. Love how you structured this today.
