ODE TO A COW

When life seems one too many for
you,
Go and look at a cow.
When the future’s black and the
outlook blue,
Go and look at a cow.
For she does nothing but eat her
food,
And sleep in the meadows entirely
nood,
Refusing to fret or worry or
brood
Because she doesn’t know how.

Whenever you’re feeling bothered
and sore,
Go and look at a cow.
When everything else is a fearful
bore,
Go and look at a cow.
Observe her gentle and placid air,
Her nonchalance and savoir faire,
Her absolute freedom from every
care,
Her imperturbable brow.

So when you’re at the end of your
wits,
Go and look at a cow.
Or when your nerves are frayed
to bits,
And wrinkles furrow your brow;
She’ll merely moo in her gentle
way,
Switching her rudder as if to say:
“Bother tomorrow! Let’s live
today!

Take the advice of a cow.”

- The Old Farmer's Almanac 1936
