    Whenever I think of rhyming poetry, I think of Stephen Katona's sweetly rhyming verse. His poems, mostly on animals make me think of the illustrious 'animal poet'... Ted Hughes' poems. Stephen has created a parallel world of animals where they are understanding, clever, compassionate and intelligent as human beings. His poems are simple and sweet, enriched with positivity and edifying thoughts. Besides being a poet, he is a born cartoonist. I wish him greater success in the ensuing years!

I cupped her in my hands,
And resisted all the boys demands,
Firmly saying 'no,

Glad to be safe from harm.

Then dropped her in my pencil case.
From that day on she was my pet.

The thought of large fangs fills them with such dread,
They shiver and quiver under the bed.
I catch a flying shoe in mid-air,
