Wednesday’s Throwback Poem

I like poem #61 because it shows how sensitive Emily was.
Are you a sensitive person?


# 61

Papa above!

Regard a Mouse

O’erpowered by the cat!

Reserve within thy kingdom

A “Mansion” for the Rat!


Snug in seraphic Cupboards

To nibble all the day,

While unsuspecting Cycles

Wheel solemnly away!

  1. Far too sensitive, I’m afraid. I’m inclined to feel sorry for the mouse, too — and I HATE it when my cats catch birds!
    I also HATE it when I hear mothers saying to their children, “I’m /Your father’s/ going to KILL you for this!”
