[another cat poem, this time a sonnet]

Let Me Out
Sara L. Russell

"O let me out" the cat was heard to cry,
"Don't keep me from the things I love the most,
Release me where the Feathered Quarry fly,
Before the earth must end, and we are toast!
The Rodentkind at forage in the hay,
The Brush-Tailed Rats* rampaging in the trees,
The Great Outside is calling me to play
To run and chase these rare delicacies.
O let me out, me out, o let me go
Where no feline has dared to romp before;
To bare ferocious teeth before the foe,
Till I return (midnight) to the back door.
O let me out, to rule at Garden's End,
Be not my jailer; I will be your friend."

perhaps youv seen stray in saturns attire, if so youll be pleased to know that having got out by some miracle she came flouncing up the street in her long white hair & demanded entrance a few days ago & has taken up residence by the window, but cats are hunters & youv gotta let them out saludos

WONDERFUL sonnet, Sara...I liked your crafty dealing on the subject(Squirrel)...

Reviewed by Jim Dunlap
This is terrific. I love cats, and I hate squirrels, so I wouldn't lose a second's sleep over seeing a cat eat a squirrel. We used to eat them when I was a kid, actually. I didn't really care for them much, but they aren't all that bad to eat. Not good for much else, that I can think of, however.

This was so cute! I love my cat, and you just nailed this completely! Loved this,
