When Sylvia Plath asked Ted Hughes if cows preferred Milton or Chaucer he said Chaucer, of course, but gave no explanation and I was certain he would say because it rhymes with saucer, which it does, now of course we know all about cows and saucers. Let us not forget milk, where you find it, and how much it hates Milton, while faraway there is a field of animals on the hill somewhat that consider how these two touch each other in often surprising ways.
