Wind is a Cat! By Ethel Romig Fuller #Christmas

Wind is a cat
That prowls at night,
Now in a valley,
Now on a height,

Pouncing on houses
Till folks in their beds
Draw all the covers
Over their heads.

It sings to the moon,
It scratches at doors;
It lashes its tail
Around chimneys and roars.

It claws at the clouds
Till it fringes their silk;
It laps up the dawn
Like a saucer of milk;

Then, chasing the stars
To the tops of the firs,
Curls down for a nap
And purrs and purrs.

  1. Thank you for this complete poem. I found the first two lines cited as the example of a metaphor in The Xerox Intermediate Dictionary, ed. William Morris (Middletown, Conn.: Xerox, 1973), p. 456.
