Yonder Tabby Cat

Yonder Tabby Cat

A Poem by Briana Noël Crane
"

a symbolic piece~

"
Where hath ye wandered, dear tabby cat? 
Quite aloof and elusive thou hast been of late. 
What scars upon the hearth thy claws hath left, 
What incisions upon my bosom thou hast made! 
Oh, I call to thee, yonder tabby cat, 
Thy dish and bedding I do setteth out... 
But alas, estranged from I and enamored of that yonder tree, 
Thou maketh thyself domestic 
Only when these affectionate pleads for thy return 
Call not to thy heart,
But to thy belly!

An amusing piece of absurd and comic poesy in the language of yore - spoken by Masters Shakespeare and Keats - two elements that seldom go hand in hand upon the page, but with this feline friend of thine by yonder tree, thou hast accomplished such a feat. Well writ!

I know this situation exactly. Not my voice but the sound of food hitting his bowl starts him running home. Really good olde world feel feline poem.

Thanks! Cats can seem very indifferent to our affection but we love them anyway.
