mouse tale

india passed on 
a wonderful poem i didn't see
first or second time round
but my little mousey inspired her to send me this
and if i know her just a wee bit
were she here, i'd hear this little tale!
thank you!

 in the mail came this
a wonderful little watercolor
from a very dear old friend
to wish me happy day 
very early!

is it today or tomorrow that we swing into the splendidness that is Sagittarius? enjoy and celebrate...and if you need to
put your paws over your eyes :o)

i'm savoring the poem for later but judging by who wrote it - it's going to be special. i also like india's added note - put paws over eyes. kitties do that - cover their eyes - and i believe they hope - "oh, i can't see 'them' so 'they' can't see me and i'm safe." the card is sweet and dear and wishing you the same for the upcoming feast day. (oddly enough, i did find a "city mouse" aka rat, in my alley yesterday - it truly wasn't so peaceful as your fellow...)

loved the poem, the card is special, for a special person. on the matter of the wee beastie Burns would say "the best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men, Gang aft agley"
