We have several books of cat poetry in our collection, one of which is A Little Book of Cat Poems compiled by Sara L. Whittier [808.8 LIT]. And since I haven't shared a cat poem with you in a while, I thought I'd share this one with you today:
Pussycat Sits on a ChairSeveral books of cat poetry are found in the children's section, including I Am the Cat by Alice Schertle [J 811 SCH] and Cat Poems selected by Myra Cohn Livingston [J 811 CAT].
by Edward Newman Horn
Pussycat sits on a chair
Implacably with acid stare.
Those who early loved in vain
Use the cat to try again,
And test their bruised omnipotence
Against the cat's austere defense.
