The Three Sheep

The Three Sheep

left alone by someone
in the fair fields
are the three sheep.

Mother and her babies
lonely, looking for company
with desperate eyes.

A price they paid
heavily for having
strayed into new ground.

The herd has returned
nonchalantly so
to their daily abode

to a warm bath and supper
to a wholesome reward
for rules they followed.

sad it may seem
but to follow the herd
though nothing new is still normal.
