Poem: The Plain Facts, By a PLAIN but AMIABLE Cat, Ruth Pitter, 20th century

See what a charming smile I bring,
Which no one can resist;
For I have a wondrous thing –
The Fact that I exist.

And I have found another, which
I now proceed to tell.
The world is so sublimely rich
That you exist as well.

Fact One is lovely, so is Two,
But O the best is Three:
The fact that I can smile at you,
And you can smile at me.
