Doing it standing up

At first glance you might think it queer
what kind of sports this cow does here.
But then you look again and find
the cow makes room for its behind.

A tiny hoof and head protrude.
So this is more than the prelude
of giving birth to a new calf:
some pushes and there’s more than half.

Respect is what I feel as mother
for this mother not to bother
but stand up on three legs still strong
full trusting nothing will go wrong.

When half the calf is out it falls
and gives the first small mooing calls.
The mother hopefully responds,
which forms at once their unique bonds.
