My tail on Tuesday

This tabby ...
loves to touch my tail ...
I just put up with it!
It's easier that way!

A poem for Marilyn...

The Progress Of Spring
by Lord Alfred Tennyson

The groundflame of the crocus breaks the mould,

Fair Spring slides hither o'er the Southern sea

Wavers on her thin stem the snowdrop cold

That trembles not to kisses of the bee:

Come Spring, for now from all the dripping eaves

The spear of ice has wept itself away,

And hour by hour unfolding woodbine leaves

O'er his uncertain shadow droops the day.

She comes! The loosen'd rivulets run;

The frost-bead melts upon her golden hair;

Her mantle, slowly greening in the Sun,

Now wraps her close, now arching leaves her bar

To breaths of balmier air;
