The Kindergarten class was reading about the virtue of Friendship. One of the things they read was a poem,

‘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.

The sense I got from re-reading The Pasture was the similarity to the shepherds that went to see baby Jesus. The Pasture spoke of the beauty of the water spring and the new born calf. The nativity speaks of the wonder of the newborn King who would be the source of living water. The ‘you come too’ reminds me of the invitation to come to God through Jesus our mediator and friend.
