Poem for Saturday

By Lissar

let the night fall
for i am not afraid of the dark
or of imaginary evils

let the night fall
let the goddess drape her scarves of black
around me
and clear the cauldron's surface
so that i might remember

...the cat jumped over

And went over to inspect the string...

...and followed it back across the cat again...

...and was prepared to do this all day long, until Rosie and apaulled both decided they had had enough.
