Cats and Dogs

"Always remember to count your blessings, and never to count on them."
—Angel Trismegistus


Limerick

A dog ages seven times faster
than the child it will watch for its master.
When the child is eleven
the dog's seventy-seven—
and the stage set for love's first disaster.

Doggerel

I wag my tail in sweet delight
Whenever you arrive in sight
I bark for joy when we go out
And lick your face and dance about—
And all of this is just to say:
"Bow wow! Bow WOW! Whoof whoof hooray!"
A lucky dog am I to be
A member of your family!

Haiku

a small cat curled up

warm and purring in my lap

imponderable

Cat Got Your Tongue


One of my cats has been trying to speak English lately

He’s driving me crazy

God-awful sound

I want to tell him he hasn’t the larynx

Or the palate

Or the tongue probably

But I can’t speak Cat

I haven’t the larynx

Or palate

Or tongue probably

And I don’t know what I’m saying

When I meow

Cat
(after C.S.)

The cat rises
in a slow fur fog.

It stretches upward
from the warm sheets and blankets
in languid convection
and then curls down.

Cats and Dogs

A dog is not a drop of rain
And neither is a cat.
Their differences are rather plain
When it comes to that—

Facts plain as weather fair or foul
Set dogs and cats apart.
Though downpours tend to hiss and howl,
These tempests have no heart.
.
Watch cats and dogs in sunlight
Once rain has gone away—
The dogs sit panting with delight;
the cats— they kneel and pray.
