How is the poem 'Animals' a contrast between humans and animals?

Dear student,
The poem 'animals' is a contrast between humans and animals as the poet says that humans lack many virtues because they are greedy and selfish whereas the animals are much more true and satisfied. He feels that the humans are always dissatisfied with their lives and are constantly running towards material possessions. They are complicated and confused whereas the animals are calm and content. Humans have lost all the virtues of love and understanding  On the other hand, the poet respects the animals as they have retained those virtues and tokens which the humans have lost.
