A poem about a cat
This nice poem was written by a 9 year-old french child on May 6, 1952. LE FIGARO wanted to publish it in its magazine. Very likely it was bought from the teacher of the child. It’s really very funny to see how a child sees cats.
“Cat is an animal that has two paws from the front,
Two others from the back,
Two paws from the left
And two others from the right.
The paws of the front help him to run,
The ones of the back serve as brakes.
Cat has a tail that follows his body
And it finishes suddenly.
He has whiskers under his nose,
They are rigid as iron wires.
That’s why he belongs to the family of felines.
Sometimes a cat wants to have kittens
And when he does, he becomes female.
