ODE TO ALL CATS


ODE TO ALL CATS

By

Lin Holmes
June 1, 2011


I AM A CAT,
I LOVE BEING THAT,
I WILL NOT CHASE A SMELLY RAT
OR A NASTY WING-ED RAT-BAT.


I SLEEP ALL THE DAY
AND JUMP THERE IN PLAY
I PURR LIKE THIS, IT IS MY WAY,
AND RARELY DO I DEIGN TO OBEY.
 
I STRETCH AND CLAW, I EVEN BITE,
AND NEVER LET YOU SLIP FROM SIGHT,
I STALK ALL CREATURES INTO THE NIGHT,
AND LEAP REAL HIGH WHEN IN FRIGHT.
 

I LOVE YOU COMPLETELY,
NOT ALWAYS MOST SWEETLY,
PREENING FOR YOUR PRAISE QUITE NEATLY,
AND LEAVING MY GIFTS SO DISCREETLY.

I AM A CAT,

AND I LOVE BEING THAT.

Well, as a cat lover, you can imagine how I feel about this ode! Absolutely love it. Lin-y-poo does it again! Hope this comment comes through with my Google account. I've done everything but a rain dance with the Blogger. If not, your pal, Heather (Haven)
