Alphabet Day

Sleeping Cat
Pierre Auguste Renoir 

Are cats lazy? Well more power to them if they are.


Alphabet Day

Anything you do today may tire you,
best thing is to rest,
create masterpieces in your head.  Enjoy a
do nothing day.
(Everyone needs them).
Face up to it,
give in,
have a day off.  Spend time
in relaxing surroundings,  think only of
joyous pastimes whether it be
lazing or
Never feel guilty, let
others do the chores,
please yourself just for once.
(Quickly before you change your mind!)
Read on the sofa or
sitting on your favourite chair.
Take time out,
under no circumstances relent or
vary your activities, just
watch the world go by,
You know you deserve it.

Cait O’Connor

PS As Winifred Carriere said ' Cats always know whether people like or dislike them.  They do not always care enough to do anything about it'.

Lovely sentiment, and I do love the quote regarding cats. Very true for my trio of felines.

Such fun!
Loved both the poem and the idea.

Cait, that sleeping cat does set a delightful pace.

I love your poem and will try to find a way to follow its theme even as the season begins to send messages of urgency.

Don't worry too much about that BBC fellow. I'd hope that most folks would realize that he was talking nonsense. If folks don't realize that, they must be living in a very different universe.

Oh I do love it and wish that I could allow myself the luxury. Perhaps next week!

Only the LAZY cats do nothing about it! Siamese cats are not lazy and they know their likes and dislikes!

Great poem!

Ruth said...

Ha! I like the turns taken in these quotes and your poem. I've learned the way of the cat all too well.

You would not believe how many masterpieces are in my head! I don't think there's room for another. Fine post. Loved it.
