Love Poem! And Useless Human

My darling Iza-Lambie of Mark's Mews won a prize for her lovely poem to me ::blush::  The contest was sponsored by the Noir Kitty Mews. You can find them and Iza's sweet poem at Noir Kitty Mews

TO MY DEAREST LOVE, SPITTIKINS 


How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways…

I love thee as
I love my meals
Warm and soft.

I love thee as
I love my rattley toys,
Noisey and whappable.

I love thee as
I love a warm pillow
Soft and quiet.

I love thee as
Birdie TV
And Fishie TV
And Skwerl TV.

I love thee as
My Protector
In the Halloween Adventure.

I love thee as
Dearly as the deer
Graze on the hostas
And Azaleas in the front yard.

I love thee as
My meals
My litterbox when it is clean
And the warm waterbed.

I love thee as
The birdies that hit our deck door
And wait for me to get out there.

And I love thy
Furs of deepest Black
Shining eyes
Claws of sharp,
And deepest mancat mystery…

In my thoughts
And in my dreams,
Thee constant comes
And in between
I dream of thee

In fact, and I’ll say this my King,
I even did this TWICE
Cuz the first version got deleted
When TBT furgot to save!


Thank you my Iza-Lambie! I've never received a poem like this. You are both beautiful and multi-talented.

And now . . . for Useless Human chat. She came home from work today all sick and sore-throated and headachy and coughing and drippy-nosed.  Frankly, it was disgusting. But she insists that she must Take to Her Bed, and probably there'll be no more cooperation this evening. So again, Happy Valentine's Day and we lubs you all a whole lot.

  4. I followed the link from Mark's Mews to read Iza's poem for you yesterday. It is very moving, isn't it?

    Human wrangling: I see you went with the mild poisoning approach after all. Couldn't get the phone to the litterbox? I hate to say 'I told you so', but ... it's not worth making the staff sick because they're ten times more painful to tolerate when they're feeling poorly than they are when they're normal.
