Mama's Last Goodbye by Gordon Snidow

Momma's Last Goodbye

It was fall in New Mexico.  We gathered the cattle at dawn.  Cows were separated from their calves.  This young mother was turned out though a gate into a separate pen from her calf.  As she was forced though the gate, she turned and bawled.  The calf answered for the last time. The next day he was aboard a cattle truck, never to be seen by her again.  I wondered, how long will she miss him?
