Ode To A Cow Quilt

 There was one more 
Cow Quilt 
from the 
Bovines of the White Moo-o-o-o-tains Exhibit
I wanted to share.
Ode To A Cow
by Gail Komasa
 comes printed with a poem
Old Farmer's Almanac 1936
The words cheered me up 
and made me smile.
I hope they do the same for you :)

When life seems one too many for you
Go look at a cow
When the future's black and the Outlook blue
Go look at a cow
For she does nothing but eat her food,
And sleep in the meadow entirely nude,
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 the 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 look at a cow
Or when your nerves are frayed to bits,
And wrinkles furrow your brow;
She'll merely moo her gentle way,
Switching her udder as if to say:
"Bother tomorrow! Let's live today!
Take the advice of a cow."
