10 of 12 given words:
vacant permeates read clip shine 
abash (v)) to destroy the self-confidence make ashamed or embarrassed)
salvage sag nervous
trenchancy (adj.)) incisive or caustic vigorous; effective; energetic)

You may detect a vacant look
That permeates a fertile cow's mind
May have read in a familiar book
Clipping on an outright shine

Unabashed in its intentions
To salvage a sagging intensity
Nowhere its self-confidence
Lacks the much-touted sincerity

Its static and forthright demeanour
Standing tall against attempts to portray
A trenchancy animal has known before
Holding out and not nervous in any way

  1. Very well put Hank, your message comes over so well.


  2. A great flow as away you go. Cows sure give that look, and can leave a mighty big pattie at ones nook.

  3. Nice contemplation on that cow's stare.
