I had withdrawn in forest, and my song
Was swallowed up in leaves that blew alway;
And to the forest edge you came one day
(This was my dream) and looked and pondered long,
But did not enter, though the wish was strong:
You shook your pensive head as who should say,
“I dare not – too far in his footsteps stray –
He must seek me would he undo the wrong.” 

Not far, but near, I stood and saw it all,
Behind low boughs the trees let down outside;
And the sweet pang it cost me not to call
And tell you that I saw does still abide.
But ’tis not true that thus I dwelt aloof,
For the wood wakes, and you are here for proof.

…..Why Cats Have Attitudes

A well-known fact by folks with pets
A truth as troubling as it gets:
……Cats have an attitude.

Oft times, you put their supper down
And all they do is sniff and frown.
……They show no gratitude.

A dog will curl up by your side;
A cat will act as if you died.
……They need much latitude.

I think our cats all have the dream
They’ll grow to lions and be supreme:
……They have big cat-itudes.
