Why English Is Hard To Learn

We'll begin with box; the plural is boxes;
But the plural of ox is oxen, not oxes,
One fowl is a goose, and two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose is never called meese.

What Is A Cat

A cat is a special gift from God
just a simple ball of fur
who will let you know he's happy
when he thanks you with his purr

A Stray Cat

I've often wondered to myself
what causes cats to stray;
are they fleeing from a cruel life
and trying to run away?

A Cat's Prayer

Thank you, God, for harvest-time,
For milk, for meat, for fish,
Thank you, God, for all the food,
I find upon my dish.

Death Be Not Proud

A loved one dies, a wake is held, and friends all euologize
They try to tell you death can be a blessing in disguise
They say it's probably for the best, that this is their belief
They offer you their sympathy, to try and ease your grief

The Gift Of Friendship

Friendship, is a special gift that we should always share
with every living creature we encounter everywhere;
and if we give it freely, it need not be repaid.
It gives to us a bounty with the new friends we have made.

A Person Like You

The meaning of being special,
is found in a person like you.
A friend who is so thoughtful,
in everything they say and do.

I'm Only A Cat

I'm only a cat,
and I stay in my place...
Up there on your chair,
on your bed or your face!

A Matter Of Choice

When the roll is called up yonder;
when my earthly life is oe'r; will my soul go straight to hell,
or will I pass through heaven's door?

The Noble Savage

Among the south-west indian tribes the Apache were revered
they lived and tilled their sacred land for over a thousand years.
They worsipped their god Yahweh and daily gave Him praise
for all the simple gifts He gave; like buffalo and maize.
