In memory of Robert's beloved cat, Mary Elizabeth


Songs of Travel X

I know not how it is with you -
       I love the first and last,
The whole field of the present view,
       The whole flow of the past.

One tittle of the things that are,
       Nor you should change nor I -
One pebble in our path - one star
       In all our heaven of sky.

Our lives, and every day and hour,
       One symphony appear:
One road, one garden - every flower
       And every bramble dear.

                    by Robert Louis Stevenson from Songs of Travel (1895)



--------------------------------------------------------------------
Mary Elizabeth's spirit was set free on August 26, 2008.

Godspeed, little soul.

Robert,
     My sincere condolences for the loss of Mary Elizabeth.  Your love for her was evident until the end when you made that difficult but compassionate decision to let her go to the Bridge where she would be whole and free and without suffering.  Prayers for peace in your heart.  Rest in Peace, dear Angel Mary Elizabeth.   Cry

Mary Elizabeth, named after my sister, you are sorely missed. You will never be forgotten. And so in memory I wrote you this poem. I hope you like. Love Dad.





---------------------------------------------
fuzzy hair of orange, black and white
full of fire, warmth and fight

you grew among us, man and beast
strong and regal to say the least

you showed us what it meant to love
sometimes to be quiet, sometimes to purr
but in the end you flew above
to a new place of joy, of life and new fur
---------------------------------------------
