In Memory of Maggie

by
 A pussy-cat who was the household pet for seventeen years.
Naught but a little cat, you say; Yet we remember her, A creature loving, loyal, kind, With merry, mellow purr; The faithful friend of many years, Shall we not give her meed of tears? Sleek-suited in her velvet coat, White-breasted and bright-eyed, Feeling when she was praised and stroked A very human pride; A quiet nook was sure to please Where she might take her cushioned ease.
Little gray friend, we shall not feel Ashamed to grieve for you; Many we know of human-kind Are not so fond and true; Dear puss, in all the years to be We'll keep your memory loyally.
