EXCERPT:

Contemporary with a sparrow tame
There lived a cat; from tenderest age,
Of both, the basket and the cage
Had household gods the same.
The bird’s sharp beak full oft provoked the cat,
Who play’d in turn, but with a gentle pat,
His wee friend sparing with a merry laugh,
Not punishing his faults by half.



COMMENTS:

The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
