First day, Year Of The Cat, my love,
imagine that, sharing secret cheshire grins
about the world a’whirling in its mad and wondrous futile spin

Second day Year of the Cat, my dear,
we shall be en-bereted hep and Jazzy cats tootling
wild and fulsome toons which chase the blue and lonely moon

Third day Year of the Cat should be
fireside curled a’purr with warmth just drowsing through,
a mutual life radiant as you, whispering, together any dream will do

Fourth day Year of the Cat and all the many after that
we will spend our lazy days beside ourselves as further proof
there is no word on earth can come between the one the you and me the two
