Here’s a little poem I just found. I feel like I’ve heard of a purple cow somewhere before…
THE PURPLE COW
Reflections on a Mythic Beast,
Who’s Quite Remarkable, at Least.
I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one.
by Gelett Burgess (1866 – 1951)
I personally would love to see a purple cow!
I found this illustration done by Burgess. I had to edit it to make it one image (it was split to fit two pages of a book). So it looks slightly different from the original…
If anyone knows of any other poems or rhymes (or stories) about purple cows, feel free to share them with us in the comments below.
