Oh pussy cat, dear pussy cat, what is it that you seek

Hiding in a dark corner from which I now see you peek

Oh pussy cat, sweet pussy cat, all cuddly soft and warm

All heart and love and furry coat in such a friendly form

Oh pussy cat, I miss you so, you help me feel so strong

Come snuggle here beside me where both you and I belong !

True friendship is the kindest thing

It moves the heart to smile and sing

And raises all our hopes and joys

Like birthday gifts and children’s toys.

It’s a blessing that loving shares

To soothe the beast midst worldly cares

For without friends one’s cast aside

Into life’s emptiness outside

To languish wasted on the vine

Without the warmth of auld lang syne !

I’m not a fan of winter chill

A runny nose or feeling ill

Fact is I’d like to outlaw snow

In any place I choose to go.

But I don’t wish to be extreme

Or shatter others and their dream

Though I don’t ski, I know it’s fun

I have seen hundreds on a run.

Perhaps I’ll winter in the house

Snuggled up like a hearthside mouse

I pray that I’ll keep warm till spring

When sunshine smiles on everything !

The winter winds are a world away

That’s where I wish that they all would stay

There are some things I could live without

Including ice, slush and sauerkraut !

Now it doesn’t matter how I try

My ideas don’t stand a chance to fly

So old winter gets to rear its head

Bringing snow and cold to us instead,

How I wish I could escape the frost

And this wintertime would just get lost !

I think I’m not the chapeau type

In spite of all of fashions’  hype

But here it is before we knew

New Easter bonnets now on view.

At this ripe age I find a hat

Gets in the way of this and that

We once wore kerchiefs on our head

To keep us warm and chic instead.

I guess that scarves are good for some

But grateful I’m not having one !

 

 

 

GREAT JOY IN SIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/02/26

It looks like spring may soon be here

Is this good time for us to cheer

Do you think we should wait a bit

Until we’re sure that this is it ?

Perhaps we’ll take another day

Ere we pack our woolens away

Another job for us to do,

Remember get some mothballs too.

I do so hate motheaten holes

In sweaters, scarves or worsted hose

At least there’s this great joy in sight

Goodbye to every frosty night !

 

OVERDRESS ( 2016 ) 2016/11/27

Today is gray it’s dark and cold

The winds that blow are swift and bold

There is a chill that fills the air

Keep searching for the warmth somewhere.

There is no cozy place to stay

No comfy soft warm hideaway

We’ll have to tough it out I guess

By wearing wool and overdress !
