Thursday Thirteen - A Poem


I have been feeling a little poetic today. I really wanted to write a love poem for beautiful Fiona but, sadly, my ego just couldn't muster the words. So, I shall revert to form and write about the one I love the most:


How Do I Love Me?

How do I love Me? Let me count the ways.

I love me to the width and girth and height

My paws can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and Royal grace

I love me to the level of everyday's

Most noisy need, by steak and candlelight.

I love me freely, as cats strive for rights;

I love me purely, as I turn towards praise.

I love me with a passion put to use

In my long claws , and with my kittenhood's faith.

I love me with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost hoo ha's, I love me with the purrs,

Smiles, yowls, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,

I shall but love me better after supper.





Fiona, I can't love any cat as much as I love myself. It is the Meezer in me. You, however, come a VERY close second. I hope you understand.

A very close second, in your case, is probably very good indeed. Fiona is a lovely gerl, we'z glad dat yoo are returning her feelings.

Ali & Fiona said...

Yao-lin I understand because any cat as purrfect as you should love themself very much. You are one awesome mancat!
Momma thinks somewhere in my kitty bloodline I may be a meezer, I am tall, skinny, sleek & have high cheek bones, not to mention I don't take crap from noone! So perhaps our love is destiny?

Your very truly,
Fifi

I am so touched that I'm choked up - oh, the beauty of how you love yourself!

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

aw, that is sweet. knowing how much you love yourself, a close second is amazing. i'm just an exalley cat former feral so my brandi will always be on a pedistal to me. i agree with casey, no mancat, even a meezer isn't complete without his lady love and fiona is a sweet little thing.

Wowie, that'sa super great poem! You oughtta call it one of your Sonnets from the Siamese, hehehe!!

I think you and little Fiona are a really neat-o couple. Y'know, my sistur Dorydoo, my sleek black sistur, looks a lot like Fi, and I think Dorydoo must have some Meezer in her, too.

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Gosh, we didn't know you had a "thing" for Fiona! She is quite the beauty isn't she? You can consider yourself one lucky guy.
