“The cat sat on the mat.”
Who said that?
It doesn't matter.
Don't you fret.
Don't get in a flap.
This cat, wise chap
knows somewhere better:
a cushion, bed or someone's lap.
Puss in Poppies
Unlike Ruth amid the alien corn,
this puss is not at all forlorn:
neck deep in poppies see him pause
with soft bouquet in velvet paws,
more like a tender turtle dove
lulled soul-deep in poppy love.
