"So now they are romping and frisking where / They like to be best as the sun sets in the west / They leap and roll over in rain-softened clover"

Cats in Clover


The winter sunshine feels so good today

The sky was all motley and dappled shade

It could have easily gone either way

Light and dark fought but decision was made

That the sun would break free and victorious


My cat is basking and thinks it glorious

To feel this half-forgotten warmth again

After days of steady relentless rain

Which indeed is to return as refrain

Soon enough but let us not think of that


But that is how they say it is to be

I would never dream of telling my cat

This afternoon is perfect and I say

Thank you Lord for this for my cat and me


I should tell you that my cat's name is Fred

Very well-fed and a very good friend

He is nine years old fat and rusty-red

When it is raining cold we always end

Up curled-up together as we weather

Out all the strange things strange storms tend to send


But now he has gone out with Smokey Joe

The neighbor-cat who knocked on the window

With his paw as he saw Fred sleeping there

So now they are romping and frisking where

They like to be best as the sun sets in the west

They leap and roll over in rain-softened clover

He looks like a fine specimen of a cat and you know something cats are great little animals and everyone should have a special friend. Fred looks like my grandsoncat Jax.
