The Pasture

I was attending a mens choir concert here. (YUM YUM!) A song was sung entitled 'The Pasture' it was based on a poem by Robert Frost. As we all know Robert Frost is my all time favorite poet. This poem was written about a couple that have been together for a long time. It shows that even the most mundane and every day tasks are better when they are together.

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I shan't be gone long. -- You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I shan't be gone long. -- You come too.

Below is a link to the song. Sorry about the poor quality, they do have lovely voices though :D
