A Cat | POEM | Kids’ Poems and Stories With Michael Rosen

“Feline Friends” by Emily Dickinson

Feline friends with blue eyes bright,

Bring a precious gift of light,

Silly kittens chase their tails,

Bringing joy with gentle mew wails.

“She Sights A Bird, She Chuckles” By Emily Dickinson

She sights a Bird—she chuckles—
She flattens—then she crawls—
She runs without the look of feet—
Her eyes increase to Balls—
Her Jaws stir—twitching—hungry—
Her Teeth can hardly stand—
She leaps, but Robin leaped the first—
Ah, Pussy, of the Sand,
The Hopes so juicy ripening—
You almost bathed your Tongue—
When Bliss disclosed a hundred Toes—
And fled with every one—

Cats of every age and size,

With beautiful pea-green boat eyes,

Some with grey wolf fur so bold,

Others with bright languid segments of gold.

“My Cat Is Fat” By James McDonald

I’ve a cat named Vesters,
And he eats all day.
He always lays around,
And never wants to play.

Not even with a squeaky toy, 
Nor anything that moves.
When I have him exercise,
He always disapproves.

So we’ve put him on a diet,
But now he yells all day.
And even though he’s thinner,
He still won’t come and play.

Of secret things.

“My Cat” by John Keats

Thy tail’s tip with a gentle curl,

Brings joy to me, my little pearl,

And in the frosty air of night,

Thy purring soothes my soul with delight.

“To Mrs. Reynold’s Cat” By John Keats

Cat! who hast past thy grand climacteric,
How many mice and rats hast in thy days
Destroy’d?—how many tit bits stolen? Gaze
With those bright languid segments green and prick
Those velvet ears—but pr’ythee do not stick
Thy latent talons in me—and upraise
Thy gentle mew—and tell me all thy frays
Of fish and mice, and rats and tender chick.
Nay, look not down, nor lick thy dainty wrists—
For all the wheezy asthma,—and for all
Thy tail’s tip is nicked off—and though the fists
Of many a maid have given thee many a maul,
Still is that fur as soft as when the lists
In youth thou enter’dst on glass-bottled wall.

“Jubilate Agno for Cats” by Christopher Smart

Rats hast thou,

O thou Indian conjurer,

Thy frays and feats of art,

Thy latent talons and thy wheezy asthma.

“The Open Drawer” by Keith Gunderson

In the open drawer,

My little tabby care does explore,

Sniffing out the scent of Santa Claus,

And Francis Witham’s snowy paws.

“Our Kittens” By Evaleen Stein

Our kittens have the softest fur,
And the sweetest little purr,
And such little velvet paws
With such cunning little claws,
And blue eyes, just like the sky!
(Must they turn green, by and by?)
Two are striped like tigers, three
Are as black as black can be,
And they run so fast and play
With their tails, and are so gay,
Is it not a pity that
Each must grow into a cat?

“The House Cat” by William Wordsworth

The house cat with thy silky fur,

Thou art a precious gift, that’s for sure,

And in the elder tree’s embrace,

Thou purr’st a song of beauty and grace.

“The kitten at play” by william wordsworth

See the kitten on the wall,
Sporting with the leaves that fall,
Withered leaves, one, two, and three
Falling from the elder tree,
Through the calm and frosty air
Of the morning bright and fair.

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.

Now she works with three and four,
Like an Indian conjurer;
Quick as he in feats of art,
Gracefully she plays her part;
Yet were gazing thousands there,
What would little Tabby care?

“Roald Dahl’s Cat” by Roald Dahl

A little tabby care so sweet,

With feats of art that can’t be beat,

Thy whiskers twitch and eyes so bright,

Bring joy to me, my little light.

“As The Cat” By William Carlos Williams

As the cat climbed over the top of 
the jamcloset— first the right forefoot
carefully then the hind stepped down
into the round of the empty flowerpot.

“The Funny Cat” By Sarah Griffin

This is my funny car in a hat
He is black and white 
And, oh, what a sight.
He will read here and there
He will read everywhere!
What’s that, a book about ham?
Oh, my! He’s a funny cat,
That Sam!

“Cats” By Eleanor Farjeon

Cats sleep, anywhere,
Any table, any chair
Top of piano, window-ledge,
In the middle, on the edge,
Open drawer, empty shoe,

Anybody’s lap will do,
Fitted in a cardboard box,
In the cupboard, with your frocks-
Anywhere! They don’t care!
Cats sleep anywhere.

“Two Kitties” By Joy Allison

Two little kitties
Wandered away
Into the prairie
One summer day.
One on two feet,
Rosy and fair,
Almost a baby,—
“Golden Hair.”

Four feet,—useless,
Eyes fast closed,
Borne in a basket
The other dozed.
Searching in terror
Far and wide,
“Golden Hair’s” mother
Moaned and cried.

Mother Puss calmly
Following slow,
Mother Puss found them,
A little heap,
Down in the deep grass
Fast asleep.

“At Night” By Aileen Fisher

When night is dark
my cat is wise
to light the lanterns
in his eyes

“A kitten’s Fancy” By Oliver Herford

The Kitten mews outside the Door,
The Cat-bird in the Tree,
The Sea-mew mews upon the Shore,
The Catfish in the Sea.

The Emu with his feathers queer
Is mewing in the Zoo.
Why is it that I never hear
A Pussy-willow mew?

“The Game” by Oliver herford

Watching a ball on the end of a string,
Watching it swing back and to,
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a Kitten can do.

First it goes this way, then it goes that,
Just like a bird on the wing.
And all of a tremble I crouch on the mat
Like a Lion, preparing to spring.

And now with a terrible deafening mew,
Like a Tiger I leap on my prey,
And just when I think I have torn it in two
It is up in the air and away.

Dr. seuss hip cat” by jennifer croy

The hip cat, with the red & white top hat
With all those books I read and pull up a mat
I sit in the sun, and reading is fun
While I grab a hot dog with a bun.

Dr. Seuss, the cat in the hat
has many things to do
kids like them, and adults do too.
With your feet on the ground
run and come up to bat
I see your on top, and that is that!

“The Purrfect Nap” by Lori Ann Peterson

When a cat wants to take a nap

It curls up tight, a furry wrap

Then it purrs and dreams of mice

Oh, what a purrfect paradise!

“Cat-astrophe” by Lori Ann Peterson

There once was a cat so sly It chased a mouse, oh my oh my!

But in the chase, the cat got stuck In a vase, with no luck

Now it sits there, tail all fluffed Wondering how to get un-stuck!

Three Tabbies By Kate Greenaway

Three tabbies took out their cats to tea,

As well-behaved tabbies as well could be:

Each sat in the chair that each preferred,

They mewed for their milk, and they sipped and purred.

Now tell me this (as these cats you’ve seen them)—

How many lives had these cats between them?

“Cats” By Eleanor Farjeon

Cats sleep
Any table,
Any chair,
Top of piano,
In the middle,
On the edge,
Open drawer,
Empty shoe,
Lap will do,
Fitted in a
Cardboard box,
In the cupboard
With your frocks-
They don’t care!
Cat’s sleep

“Mr. Mistoffelees” by T.S. Eliot

You ought to know Mr. Mistoffelees!
The Original Conjuring Cat–
(There can be no doubt about that).
Please listen to me and don’t scoff. All his
Inventions are off his own bat.
There’s no such Cat in the metropolis;
He holds all the patent monopolies
For performing suprising illusions
And creating eccentric confusions.
At prestidigitation
And at legerdemain
He’ll defy examination
And deceive you again.
The greatest magicians have something to learn
From Mr. Mistoffelees’ Conjuring Turn.
Away we go!
And we all say: OH!
Well I never!
Was there ever
A Cat so clever
As Magical Mr. Mistoffelees!

He is quiet and small, he is black
From his ears to the tip of his tail;
He can creep through the tiniest crack,
He can walk on the narrowest rail.
He can pick any card from a pack,
He is equally cunning with dice;
He is always deceiving you into believing
That he’s only hunting for mice.
He can play any trick with a cork
Or a spoon and a bit of fish-paste;
If you look for a knife or a fork
And you think it is merely misplaced–
You have seen it one moment, and then it is gawn!
But you’ll find it next week lying out on the lawn.

And we all say: OH!
Well I never!
Was there ever
A Cat so clever
As Magical Mr. Mistoffelees!

His manner is vague and aloof,
You would think there was nobody shyer–
But his voice has been heard on the roof
When he was curled up by the fire.
And he’s sometimes been heard by the fire
When he was about on the roof–
(At least we all heard that somebody purred)
Which is incontestable proof
Of his singular magical powers:
And I have known the family to call
Him in from the garden for hours,
While he was asleep in the hall.
And not long ago this phenomenal Cat
Produced seven kittens right out of a hat!
And we all said: OH!
Well I never!
Did you ever
Know a Cat so clever
As Magical Mr. Mistoffelees!

“A Cat’s Conscience” by unknown

A dog will often steal a bone,
But conscience lets him not alone,
And by his tail his guilt is known.

But cats consider theft a game,
And, howsoever you may blame,
Refuse the slightest sign of shame.

When food mysteriously goes,
The chances are that Kitty knows
More than she leads you to suppose.

And hence there is no need for you,
If puss declines a meal or two,
To feel her pulse and make ado!

“A Serious Question” By Carolyn Wells

A kitten went a-walking

One morning in July,

And idly fell a-talking

With a great big butterfly.

The kitten’s tone was airy,

The butterfly would scoff;

When there came along a fairy

Who whisked his wings right off.

And then—for it is written

Fairies can do such things—

Upon the startled kitten

She stuck the yellow wings.

The kitten felt a quiver,

She rose into the air,

Then flew down to the river

To view her image there.

With fear her heart was smitten,

And she began to cry,

“Am I a butter-kitten?

Or just a kitten-fly?”

“Cat” By Mary Britton Miller

The black cat yawns,
Opens her jaws,
Stretches her legs,
And shows her claws.

Then she gets up
And stands on four
Long stiff legs
And yawns some more.

She shows her sharp teeth,
She stretches her lip,
Her slice of a tongue
Turns up at the tip.

Lifting herself
On her delicate toes,
She arches her back
As high as it goes.

She lets herself down
With particular care,
And pads away
With her tail in the air.

“Kitty’s Lullaby” by Lori Ann Peterson

Kitty, kitty, close your eyes Let your dreams take you to the skies Softly purring in your bed Snuggled up, a cozy spread

In your dreams, you’ll catch a mouse Or chase a ball around the house Or maybe climb a tree up high And reach the stars up in the sky

Kitty, kitty, don’t you fear Your dreams will keep you ever near And when you wake, you’ll be refreshed Ready for another day, your best

So close your eyes and let it be A purring, peaceful lullaby For you, my sweet and lovely cat Sleep tight, and dream of this and that.
