Purrsday Poetry: Princess Tiger Beauty, Portrait of a Cat

In grandeur so magnificent you stand,

More dignified in splendor than a lion;

I muse on pyramids, and on Orion,

And endless empires lost in realms of sand.

An empress gazing over all her land,

And of the Sphynx himself a sacred scion,

You render glorious anything you lie on,

And turn an armchair into something grand.

And yet, when we first met, you were a shade:

So scrawny and so heartbreaking and proud,

It crushed my soul. I fed you by the hand,

Until you condescended to my aid.

A mind unbroken, lofty as a cloud,

And still uncowed with worlds at your command.
