The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

The fat cat on the mat
may seem to dream
of nice mice that suffice
for him, or cream;

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

but he free, maybe,
walks in thought
unbowed, proud, where loud
roared and fought

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

his kin, lean and slim,
or deep in den
in the East feasted on beasts
and tender men.

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

The giant lion with iron
claw in paw,
and huge ruthless tooth
in gory jaw;

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

the pard dark-starred,
fleet upon feet,
that oft soft from aloft
leaps upon his meat

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

where woods loom in gloom —
far now they be,
fierce and free,
and tamed is he;

The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings The Cat with the Beautiful Markings

but fat cat on the mat
kept as a pet
he does not forget.

— J R R Tolkien
