Grace and Grit
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
The fools would not allow Constellation
Felis to be, but still you are a star,
Oh Cat! You are worthy of ovation,
No less than victors on entering Rome.
What fool could doubt it, as you carry home
The proof of what a hunter you so are!
All you need are your awesome claws and fangs,
Stalking with a silence like a midnight
Dead of winter, but how you spring alive!
What honor does man have, who must go bang
With rifles, and cannot win a fair fight?
What hope would he have, even to survive
A bear face to face, with bare arms alone?
It is said you symbolize the unknown,
Mysterious and magical. Quite so,
You bear a grace and grit few humans show.
I dare say that you put my kind to shame.
Meow, purr, murmur, hiss, shriek, chatter, yowl, moan,
By all these, but most of all your actions,
You show boons, of which man has but fractions.
What word could do you justice as your name?
You are - THE CAT!
Author's Notes: There wasn't a Constellation Felis for long, but there still is a bright star by that name, since June 1, 2018.
