Feline Poetry

Here's part of my favorite cat poem, "On a Cat Aging" by Alexander Gray. I wonder if our Poet Laureate likes it, too.

She blinks upon the hearth-rug,
and yawns in deep content,
accepting all the comforts
that Providence has sent.

Louder she purrs, and louder,
in one glad hymn of praise
for all the night's adventures,
for quiet, restful days.

Life will go on for ever,
with all that cat can wish:
warmth and the glad procession
of fish and milk and fish.

Please take a moment to visit this week's Friday Ark.
