Our Prayer for You by Stuart Macfarlane

Our Prayer for You
Our adorable darling daughter,
Lying serenely in your cot.
Already you’ve given greater happiness,
Than we could ever wish or dream.
Your eyes sparkle brighter than diamonds,
Your smile glows of innocent love,
Your gentle breath like a zephyr of tenderness.
To hold your tiny hand, to touch your silken cheeks,
Is delight beyond earthly measure.
We cherish each moment we share,
And pray the happiness destiny holds for you,
Echoes the happiness that you’ve given to us.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)

Ode to Spot by Commander Data, United Federation of Planets

Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?
Your visual, olfactory and auditory senses
contribute to your hunting skills, and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
a singular development of cat communications
that obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
for a rhythmic stroking of your fur, to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
you would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aide in locomotion,
it often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behaviour you display
connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall by Anonymous

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

A Poison Tree by William Blake

I was angry with my friend.
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe.
I told it not, my wrath did grow;


And I water'd it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles;


And it grew both day and night
Till it bore an apple bright,
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,


And into my garden stole
When the night had veil'd the pole.
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

In the Land of the Bumbley Boo by Spike Milligan

In the land of the Bumbley Boo
The People are red white and blue,
They never blow noses,
Or ever wear closes,
What a sensible thing to do!

In the land of the Bumbley Boo
You can buy Lemon pie at the zoo;
They give away foxes
In little Pink Boxes
And Bottles of Dandylion Stew.

In the land of the Bumbley Boo
You never see a Gnu,
But thousands of cats
Wearing trousers and hats

Chorus
Oh, the Bumbley Boo! the Bumbley Boo!
That's the place for me and you!
So hurry! Let's run!
The train leaves at one!
For the land of the Bumbley Boo!
The wonderful Bumbley Boo-Boo-Boo!
The Wonderful Bumbley BOO!!!
