From in Prose:

 

The Fly Bit the Cow

A cow stood on the grass. Grandma was milking the cow. The milk was flowing into the bucket. A fly was cruising around the cow. Granddaughter was chasing the fly with a birch branch. “Grandma, where is God?” “God lives in your heart and he will always whisper to you whenever you move away from him.” The cow was stretching its ear. “God is also in this grass, on which the bucket stands, and in this milk that fills the bucket to the brim, and in this cow that gives the milk, and everything wants to live its own life.” The cow nodded. The girl held the branch still. The fly bit the cow. The irritated cow swung its tail. Grandma knocked over the bucket. The milk spilled on the grass. “Nobody will drink milk today. Everything has its boundaries,” Grandma said. The cow nodded.
