One for the Road: Lullaby For The Cat — National Poetry Month

One for the road!

Lullaby For The Cat

Minnow, go to sleep and dream,

Close your great big eyes;

Round your bed Events prepare

The pleasantest surprise.

Darling Minnow, drop that frown,

Just cooperate,

Not a kitten shall be drowned

In the Marxist State.

Joy and Love will both be yours,

Minnow, don't be glum.

Happy days are coming soon--

Sleep, and let them come...

by Elizabeth Bishop
