Ode to a Cow

When life seems one too many for you, 

Go and look at a Cow. 

When the futures black and the outlooks 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 or 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!” …  

from The Old Farmers Almanac – 1936 –
