Almanac Wooden Sign - Ode to a Cow

SKU: SIGNCOW
This poem was originally printed in The 1936 Old Farmer's Almanac. Its inspirational advice is still relevant for today's busy lifestyles. An Almanac General Store exclusive! Antique finish Features black letters over a cream background The letters have the hand-set type look of yesteryear Secure keyhole slot hanger Wood: Select grade pine Measures: 22" x 5.5" x 3/4" Made in the USA    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

Love this poem it's so true. I love my cows and whenever I'm stressed or angry I go sit with them and hang. I can feel all the bad stuff flow away! The sign is great too! Love that a free Garden magazine was thrown in with the purchase! It was a good read too!

I have never owned a cow, but I love them! Even the Cherubim in heaven have the face of an ox on one side, signifying that Christ came as a servant. It is good advice to observe a cow. They are so sweet.

It would be nice if every large town and city would have a Cow Park in the middle of everything so that city people would have a chance to realize how true this poem is. There are too many people in this country who may never have seen a real cow or heard one mooooooooooooo! Another reason I like this poem is that it was published the year I was born! And I love Cows!!!
