cat poetry blogging

Since I don't have much to do today, except get well, I managed to dig up another cat poem. Since I haven't heard any complaints, this occasional off and on series will continue, whenever I find a piece that is particularly noteworthy.

In the Image of the Lion
Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Wild beasts he created later,
Lions with their paws so furious;
In the image of the lion
Made he kittens small and curious.

- from Songs of Creation translated by E.A. Bowring
