The curious cow remarked one day
chewing on a cud of hay............
"People are a funny brand ---- our farmer I can't understand
corn is wet, the mortgage's due,
but I just never see him blue.
Even though some things go wrong,
he whistles out a song."
Then spoke up the wise old cat,
"That man is smart; I'll tip my hat!
get around....and I have found
people either smile or frown.
tarnish life with discontent,
other people's days are spent
counting all the blessings sent.
quite an art.
secret is a grateful heart."
