Description

See the kitten, how she starts,
Crouches, stretches, paws and darts;
With a tiger-leap half way
Now she meets her coming prey.
Lets it go as fast and then
Has it in her power again.
From 'The Kitten at Play' by William Wordsworth

Curious, enigmatic and playful, cats have often inspired the literary imagination. This beautifully illustrated anthology of cat poetry is a celebration of the world's most loved pet by the world's most loved poets. The purrfect gift for cat lovers.
