loved the old and now the new

an earring went AWOL

in yonder urban sprawl

it was a cherished treasure

that gave the wearer pleasure

* * *

this bauble? no ordinary thing

t’was cat hair that made it zing!

so another set was made

to replaced the one that strayed


gaia-no-jewelry-no—it’s Luna’s SHOW!

It’s Earth day and my birthday–Mew

And time I got what I was due!

You’ve hogged the show, now let me through

It’s Luna’s day so won’t you SHOO!

I’ll take the cake and presents too

With tuna frosting please, thank you!

5 but going on 2!

It’s party time and that means play!

The cake? the treats? that’s not his feast

It’s fun he craves, this silly beast

He’ll race the house, he’s down right wild

As if he were a manic child!

With toys and things he’ll dance and twist

But there’s one thing that can’t be missed.

The hall—With shrieks of joy, he will insist

Open up that door!—can i resist?

There pleasures lurk we find mundane

But smells and sounds are his terrain.

Out, out he goes, to roam and sniff

I’m glad he loves his birthday gift!
