"To Mickey" Tuesday

To My Darling Mancat Mickey
From Marilyn MonREOW
With my whiskers all a-quiver
And my heart all a-flutter

Sonnet CXVI
by William Shakespeare
(tweaked by Marilyn MonREOW)

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love,
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
Oh, no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests.. and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love is not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheekpads
Within his bending sickle's compass come.
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out.. even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no girlcat ever loved.


A Book of Verse
by Omar Khayyam
(tweaked by Marilyn MonREOW)

A book of verse, underneath the bough,
A jug of tuna juice, a can of stinky goodness - and thou
Beside me purring in the wilderness -
Ah, wilderness were paradise enow!

My dearest Mickey,

I'm so glad you liked the poetry! Shakespeare and Omar Khayyam wrote wonderful works, though of course they couldn't be expected to know that tuna juice and stinky goodness are far more romantic than wine or bread.

Lovingly yours,


MaoMao said...

Hi everybodies! And hehehe, I think tuna jooce and stinky goodness are way better than wine or bread, too.

Oh, I fergot to say, Momma's been thinkin' about givin' Marilyn her own bloggie. Not really sure what we'll do. Tecknikally this Ballicus bloggie's for all of us, but I'm kinda the spokeskitty and Marilyn's sure wantin' to do an awful lotta talkin'!
