Oliver Herford Kitten Poems

  • 1.
    The Kitten mews outside the Door,
    The Cat-bird in the Tree,
    The Sea-mew mews upon the Shore,
    The Catfish in the Sea.
  • 2.
    Up into the Cherry Tree,
    Who should climb but little me,
    With both my Paws I hold on tight,
    And look upon a pleasant sight.
  • 3.
    When I was just a Kitten small,
    They gave to me a Rubber Ball
    To roll upon the floor.
    One day I tapped it with my paw
  • 4.
    When Human Folk at Table eat,
    A Kitten must not mew for meat,
    Or jump to grab it from the Dish,
    (Unless it happens to be fish).
  • 5.
    When Human Folk put out the light,
    And think they've made it dark as night,
    A Pussy Cat sees every bit
    As well as when the lights are lit.
  • 6.
    There's a funny little kitten that tries to look like me,
    But though I'm round and fluffy, he's as flat as flat can be;
    And when I try to mew to him he never makes a sound,
    And when I jump into the air he never leaves the ground.
  • 7.
    Kittens, you are very little,
    And your kitten bones are brittle,
    If you'd grow to Cats respected,
    See your play be not neglected.

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Spleen III
 by Charles Baudelaire

Je suis comme le roi d'un pays pluvieux,
Riche, mais impuissant, jeune et pourtant très-vieux,
Qui, de ses précepteurs méprisant les courbettes,
S'ennuie avec ses chiens comme avec d'autres bêtes.
Rien ne peut l'égayer, ni gibier, ni faucon,
Ni son peuple mourant en face du balcon.
Du bouffon favori la grotesque ballade
Ne distrait plus le front de ce cruel malade;
