Green Pastures

For every beast of the forest is mine
and  the cattle on a thousand hills.
                                Psalms 50:10

From the plains of the Midwest
 to the coastal plain of the East Coast,
there are green pastures and hillsides.

Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia

On some, cattle rest in the early afternoon,
on others, beautiful chestnut horses graze.
Still others are dotted with small white goats that do both.
Such scenes are wondrous in their simplicity,
but it turns out the greenest pastures 
are the ones where you live.
