Good Morning & Good Night - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

Good morning she said
As she walked through the door
Greeted by two purring cats

Good morning they said
In courteous reply
May we please take your coat and your hat

So she sat on the sofa
Near a book of the sea
While the cats sat beside her and offered Brandy

Which she gladly accepted
And put in her cup
With three lumps of sugar and a bright buttercup

That she mixed altogether
And drank straight away
While the ships in the harbor pulled into the bay

She opened the windows
To smell the salt sea
Then she sat as her cats hopped upon both her knees

And they purred out this song
As they watched her get tight
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night
