They say animals have wisdom

The cat 
She has learnt:
Take each day as it comes;
Silently she sits and looks out
From the sill,
Serene and calm
In thought;
Still the weather does not change
She asks for the door
She surveys,
The wind on her fur,
The dampness on a paw,
Daintily she shakes it off
And draws back inside,
A repeated ritual
Until resigned
To a neatly made bed;
She retreats
To sleep;
She has learned to be still;
She has patience
When plans are changed;
I must learn patience
Like the cat.
