Sunshine Sonnet for Mickey

I wrote this more or less as an Italian or Petrarchan Sonnet and used a rhyming pattern known as rima baciata, or "kissing rhyme" (*blush* and *purrrrrr*).

"Sunshine Sonnet for Mickey" by Marilyn MonREOW

Dawn breaks: the sun, its glory,
Dazzles heart and sight
Dappled pearl by golden light:
My love, my heart's great story.
Unceasing sunshine is my Bear,
And I'm the ripe, red flower
Our love's the hummingbird empowered
To perch and flutter there.
My mancat strolls through emerald grass,
White beam among its blades
Like love, his luster never fades,
Nor could light surpass.
Mick ignites my days and dreams
With heart of gold and fur that gleams.

Dear Marilyn ...
You wrote that FANTASTIC sonnet ... and all I was capable of tonight was "beep beep 'm beep beep yeah."
But ... I am driven to write a sonnet for you!

Wow, I didn't know we cats could be so romantical. Maybe because I got my neuticles snipped at the V-E-T and Trixie and Lucy had ladygardenectomies.

Yore a furry pretty lady cat and if I still had neuticles I could really fall for you.

Your friend, Bouncey
