MY LITTLE LAMB (A herder boys poem)

My Little Lamb
(A herder boys poem)

My little lamb
With your spotted forehead
Among thousands of sheep
I see you
Coming my way
Baaaah baaaah bleating for me

Shiny pearl white coat
Searching black eye
Among millions of sheep
She is a beauty
Only she and I
Playing around home.

Kneeling at her Moms breast
Sucking at her Moms teat
Jumping into my lap
Cuddling up to me
Bouncing all around playing
Making all the herders happy.
