Milk and Honey

Listen to Carmen read her poem ...
Don’t ask me why or where or how,
But I know a bee who loved a cow.
After spending a whole day on the cow’s nose,
In the evening, she decided to propose.
“You’re kind of small,” said the cow, "but I don’t care.
We’ll be the world’s first milk and honey pair.”
So the bee and the cow exchanged their marriage vow –
Just don’t ask me why or where or how.
