Love is Blind

Love is Blind

A Poem by Joyce S. Greene
"

Love is blind but still can smell . . .

"

 

 

 

 

 

 

One morning she lies in her bed

and looks at him, the cat she wed

 

She's happy as a puss can be

for he and she are now a we

 

She met him just the night before

behind some bushes right next door

 

And though no moon lit up the skies

and she could only see his eyes

 

The light within them turned her on

and they were wed before the dawn

 

Now she looks down at his sweet face

and strokes his nose so she can trace

 

The line dividing his black cheeks

as white as all his other streaks

 

Then suddenly she cries, 'Oh my,

what is that smell, has something died?'

 

But he was having a bad dream

and let out an ungodly scream

 

'We are in mortal danger, run,

I will protect you, honey bun!'

 

And fast away that cat did fly

and did not even say good-bye

 

For she had learned and will all tell

that love is blind but still can smell!

Oh, another poem I had to giggle at! Lovely. It remeided me of the cat mydaughter and her man (no children) adopted. She LOVES this cat, but he keeps bringing in little half eaten offerings! He must feel terribly rejected when she turns her nose up and puts them in the bin! Actually, they say smell is a very powerful, but little realised sense. Those old smell hormones can do a lot, without anyone knowing!

Very funny and when we got to the smell part, even though it has been years, old Pepe is the first thing that came to mind. Nice Joyce

You're very welcome, Blue. Thank you for the very nice review. You are a good friend.
Cute, and a tad raunchy, so much better the the run of the mill "ode to cat."

What a wonderful piece, Joyce. I think poets tend to take themselves a bit too seriously at times (myself included) and I thought it was great that you broke out of that and wrote something as charming as this! This made me smile all the way through and once you mentioned 'Pepe le Peu', it was evident why I loved this so much. I love Pepe le Peu!

An absolutely delightful read!

Rat in the hen house, skunk in the barn... Love is a tricky thing that can turn sour quicker than we can imagine! Fun read :)
