Poetry Break… Ode to Cats

Ode To Cats

There was something wrong with the animals:
their tails were too long and they had
unfortunate heads.
Then they started coming together,
little by little
fitting together to make a landscape,
developing birthmarks, grace, pep.

But the cat,
only the cat
turned out finished,
and proud:
born in a state of total completion,
it sticks to itself and knows
exactly what it wants.

Pablo Neruda
1904-1973

I don’t know if you need this much help, but just in case, here are two photos our mailbox. Now, you will can absolutely confidently know you found the Hamilton family and Bliss Boarding. (-:
