The Night Before Tomorrow!


Twas the night before tomorrow,
And we heard not a peep.
The cat ate the mouses
While we were asleep!

I awoke from a deep sleep
And heard not a purr.
But I started sneezing
From the cats own loose fur.

I looked out my window
Wondering where is that cat?
He had gotten outside,
And was carrying a rat.

I heard a Rottweiler barking
As the cat hit the tree.
He was looking for help,
With his head turned toward me!

I yelled “Call all the rats and mice
You have tortured now for years.”
“I’m sure they would help
Had you not killed all their peers!

Twas the night before tomorrow,
New mice are running free.
Oh yes, and that Rottweiler,
Is up on the bed beside me!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
