National Poetry Month

Painting by Vladimir Rumyantsev http://vsemart.com/painting-cats-vladimir-rumyantsev/

April is National Poetry Month. I share this every year, one of my few poems ever to see the light of day.

Pierre le Chat

Pierre le Chat was a debonair cat
And he lived in gay Paree
He could charm the mademoiselles
Under the Notre Dame bells
With a bottle of Musigny.

Pierre le Chat was a debonair cat
Flirting on the roofs of Paree
He would sing out a song
All the live long day long
Purring j’aime and Je t'adore.

Pierre le Chat was a debonair cat
Working hard all the day in Paree
For mademoiselle was smitten
And produced fourteen kittens
N'est-ce pas, c'est la vie.
