The Pasture
by Robert Frost

I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;
I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha’n’t be gone long.
You come too.

I’m going out to fetch the little calf
That’s standing by the mother.
It’s so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha’n’t be gone long.
You come too.
