On A Cold Winters Night
By Paul Moxham
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

On A Cold Winters Night
By Paul Moxham

The cows in the meadow 
Are standing in snow 
No shelter for them 
From the cold icy flow

The farmers in houses 
Know not what’s outside 
No cold do they feel 
All snuggled inside

The horse in the barn 
Is shaking from fear 
From clanging of doors 
But no one is near

The children inside 
No wind do they fear 
In their cosy warm blankets 
Not a cry do they hear
