Inside Buddy Foster's World
Meow. Simon here. Today’s poem is by J. R. R. Tolkien. Supposedly written by hobbit Samwise Gamgee, it suggests that a cat lying in front of a cozy fire has not forgotten her wild ancestry. I’m sure that is true but with my computer skills I am a long way from the jungle.
Sammie thinks Samwise is a nice name.
The fat cat on the mat
may seem to dream
of nice mice that suffice
for him, or cream;
but he free, maybe,
walks in thought
unbowed, proud, where loud
roared and fought
his kin, lean and slim,
or deep in den
in the East feasted on beasts
and tender men.
The giant lion with iron
claw in paw,
and huge ruthless tooth
in gory jaw;
the pard, dark-starred,
fleet upon feet,
that oft soft from aloft
leaps on his meat
where woods loom in gloom–
far now they be,
fierce and free,
and tamed is he;
but fat cat on the mat
kept as a pet,
he does not forget.
