Grouch, the Drop-in Cat

What a beautiful white cat he was
He dropped in to visit one day
He walked through the house twice
Before deciding he would stay

He did not like our kitten, Whisky
Though Whisky was impressed
Followed Grouch around constantly
And turned into quite a pest

Then one day, Sam dropped in
The black cat that was very strong
Grouch went out that door immediately
But he didn’t stay gone too long

You know, Grouch never accepted them
So close friends they could be
But I sure did enjoy this white Manx
He became such a delight to me!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
