I have two curious calico cats,
and just like them, I am a curious kitty,
gosh, I would like to take a long voyage,
to England and meet Jack Horne!
We have talked by comment, e-mail, letter,
I know so much about him and his life,
he is a terrible writer so he only types,
and mine is not too good either!
He says he can read it (thats silly),
I sent him a photo of me and the kitties,
he wrote back, "just like I imagined",
oh Jack, how is the weather today!
In rainy Plymouth England,
give that birdie Joe a big hug,
from your friend in cold, distant Canada,
or would that just be silly!
Sadly, he tells me Joe is no more,
we said kind words for a little tiny bird,
"we are poets, Jack," I said to my friend,
pour that emotion into the words of a poem!
He is always there for me to talk,
I can tell him anything happening in my life,
the good, the bad and the oh, so ugly,
the kindest, sweetest, blessed man!
