The Little Goat Eating Sweetest Grass
The little goat set off in search of the most delicious grass. The sky was blue above us. She, on the other hand, did not raise her head. The river gurgled below us. The tiny goat, on the other hand, was unconcerned with the song. "How are you doing?" asked a bird.
The tiny goat, on the other hand, stayed deafeningly silent. She just took a stroll, looking for the most fragrant grass. As she travelled, the small goat drifted further and further away from the mother goat. The small goat discovered the most delicious grass. She ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate. She had travelled a long way from mother goat. Mother goat couldn't figure out where her baby goat had gone. She peeked inside the mealie patch, but there was nothing there. The mother goat ran to the edge of the water. The small goat, on the other hand, was not present. The mother goat bleated, "Where are you, baby goat?" The mother goat was startled awake by a bird. "Over the bridge, a little goat is comfortably dozing on the luscious grass." The mother goat walked across the bridge and into the thick grass. She observed that there was a sleeping tiny goat nearby. Mother goat softly murmured, "Wake up, little goat." The narrator exclaims, "You were stuck!" "I wasn't mindlessly wandering.... " "I've been here all along!" said the small goat.
