Trouble (Magellan at Eight Weeks)
A Lamp Should Not Look Like This!
My husband warned me that this one was going to be trouble.
He warned me not to get snookered by a pretty face.
“I recognized a Tsunami when I saw one, and this one?
I predict we have a Typhoon on our hands!”
Of course, I’m an eternal optimist.
Of course, I had higher hopes for his future than that!
“Sure, he’s a little rambunctious now, but
Greatness lies within my Magellan!
Of course, even the best of us sometimes go astray!
However, there’s no way to sugar-coat our latest kitten disaster.
I have to acknowledge the cold hard facts.
A lamp –
Especially one gifted by one’s beloved –
Should never look like this!
So – in honor of Magellan’s Dastardly Deed Of The Week –
The one that accidentally occurred during the midst of innocent play –
I am sharing a poem that truly fits the occasion.
The poem is called To A Vase – but the sentiment still applies!
Poem Of The Week – To A Vase
How do I break thee? Let me count the ways.
I break thee if thou art at any height
My paw can reach, when, smarting from some slight,
I sulk, or have one of my crazy days.
I break thee with an accidental graze
Or twitch of tail, if I should take a fright.
I break thee out of pure and simple spite
The way I broke the jar of mayonnaise.
I break thee if a bug upon thee sits.
I break thee if I’m in a playful mood,
And then I wrestle with the shiny bits.
I break thee if I do not like my food.
And if someone they shards together fits,
I’ll break thee once again when thou art glued.
Henry N. Beard
Poetry For Cats: The Definitive Anthology of Distinguished Feline Verse
How do I love thee Magellan?
Let me count the ways!
