Fellow Kossack on the cusp wrote a diary, My Dad stole Boney the cow. Most deservedly, it glitters in the middle of the rec list, like the toy you always wanted.

I read the diary and fell in love with Boney and wrote a poem about her and on the cusp's Dad and my Dad and light and air and water and soil.

This might be Boney but probably isn't:

All of my poems are about light and air and water and soil, not necessarily in that order.
To read this one, look below the impressionist cheese doodle.

Boney the cow is with us,

as is your dad.

In every bit of cheese,

dab of butter,

glass of milk,

they are present.

They nourish us, protect us and lead us ever onward.

Our fathers reside in the dust,

where water and sunlight bring forth hay

to wave in the cool of morning.

The children of Boney munch and ruminate

In the swelter of Texas noon they chew the cud of all the ages

And drop the sweet stinking mess that shares their bounty

with the birds and beetles and worms.

Stir me into the dust when I die,

I will bring forth watermelon vines

and pecan trees

and sweet alfalfa for the Clan of Boney.

7:18 PM PT: Rec list? I bask in on the cusp's reflected glory.
Thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
