On A Night Of Snow

Cat, if you go outdoors you must walk in the snow.

You will come back with little white shoes on your feet,

Little white slippers of snow that heels of sleet.

Stay by the fire, my cat, lie still, do not go.

See how the flames are leaping and hissing low,

I will bring you a saucer of milk, like a marguerite,

So white and so smooth, so spherical and so sweet

Stay with me, cat, outdoors the wild wind blows.


Outdoors, the wild wind blows, Mistress

and dark is the night.

Strange voices cry in the trees,

intoning strange lore:

And more than cats move,

lit by our eyes green light,

On silent feet where the meadow grasses hang hoar,

Mistress, there are portents abroad of magic and might,

And things that are yet to be done,

open the door !

Your cat can be a star!
