They strolled the lanes

They strolled the lanes together
The sky was covered in stars

They reached the gate in silence
He lifted for her, the bars

She neither smiled nor thanked him
For she knew not how

For he was only a farmer's boy
And she was a Jersey cow.

A poem told to me by my mother sometime around 1951. I can't find it on the internet and I don't know the author.
