What do you call a pig who has just had a scare?

(four lined rhyming poerms)

Grass plants, without sun or shade
Personify their name— blade
A little rain hitting the ground
Turns soft green what had been browned.

Do not forget
A soldier applaud.
More than “just a vet”
A gift from God.

An author of note is Geoffrey Chaucer
He was known for his biting satire.
Now it is seen as prudent
To read his story-poor students!

(Answer to riddle - a shakin' bacon)
