Donne Well-Done





Busy old fool, unruly Sun,
why dost thou thus,
through windows, and through curtains, call on us?
-John Donne

  1. And then....

    It comes as an accomplice, stealthily,
    the lovely hour that is the felon's friend;
    the sky, like curtains around a bed, draws close,
    and man prepares to become a beast of prey.

    Charles Baudelaire

  4. In my eyes, indisposed,
    In disguise as no one knows
    Hides the face,
    Lies the snake,
    And the sun in my disgrace.

    What can I say? The best my human and I can do is Chris Cornell.

  23. oh, Dear Spitty...
    Shall I compare thee to a sunny day?
    Thou art more furry and more fluffinate;
    Rough cats do shake teh darling mice of May,
    and summer's fleas hath not too short a date:
    Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,
    And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
    And every fur from fur sometimes declines,
    By sheds, or kitteh's matting furs untrimmed;
    But thy eternal fluffiness shall not fade,
    Nor lose possession of that fur brush thou own'st,
    Nor shall humans ruin sunpuddles with his shade,
    When in eternal brushie-times thou growl'st,
    So long as cats can purr, or eyes can see,
    So long pets this, and this gives fluff to thee.

  24. Oh yeah? Just wait until you go through menopaws and gain an ounce or 80, pal. You'll be needing a lazy toy too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Just imagine, all kitties in your area come out and soak the sun at the window in da same time
    That's going to be Amazing ; )

  30. To call you to play in light,
    And know the difrence b'tween the night.
    And ME who haply gives you sight
    And calls the mousies out to play.

  31. It hasn't called nearly loudly not often enough, to our minds. *grump*

  32. Spitty, you're looking mighty regal in the sun, behind the curtains.

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
