Saturday thoughts

Thoughts of Marilyn make me smile.
This week's visit was very special.
The way your little paw moved
AH, God, the way your little paw moved
As you thrust a white arm backward
And made play with your fur
And a comb a silly gilt comb
Ah, God--that I should suffer
Because of the way a little paw moved.
Stephen Crane (and Mickey Mantle)

My darling Mickey,

Thank you for that beautiful poem, dear -- the way you moved your big, handsome mancat paw made me crazy, too! *purrrrrrrrr*

And ***happy sigh***, you look so handsome curled up in front of your monitor - my girlcat skips a beat as I see you gazing at my picture.

Remember this, from the Jimi Hendrix song? "May This Be Love":

So let them laugh, laugh at me,
so just as long as I have you
to see me through,
I have nothing to lose 'long as I have you.


Your ever-loving,

Marilyn
