Iced Cream

I’ve never seen
A purple cow,
Or purple Milk
Or butter.
But a cow
Knee deep
In snow,
I’m sure,
Has a cold
And purple
Udder.

About the Author

Henry King authored ten books including:
The Witch of Morganton and Other Fascinating Folks;
Tar Heel Tombstones and the Tales They Tell;
Hooray for Heroines (Tar Heel Women Who Faced the Enemy and Made the Enemy Blink),
for which he won the Willie Parker Peace History Book Award in 2004 from the
North Carolina Society of Historians.

He was a staff member and columnist for the Courier-Tribune in Asheboro, NC for thirty years and a recipient of the George Washington Honor Medal Award from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for a column published in May of 1971 entitled “Who Am I?”

King loved the outdoors and nature and founded two nature libraries, of which the first was the Morningstar Nature Refuge in Williamston, NC (now closed). Prior to his death in 2010, he established the Liberty Nature Research Library in Liberty, NC, to which he donated over 1,200 books. The collection includes King’s handwritten notes, jotted on slips of paper and tucked into books.
