A Pleiades for Mickey

In my perusings, I ran across a poetry form I hadn't heard of before: the Pleiades. As our names, first and last, begin with "M" -- Micky Mantle; Marilyn MonREOW -- this form seems tailor-made for us *purrrr*. So I had to try my paw at a Pleiades poem for Mickey.


Mickey

Mancat beyond compare who
Moves me with his
Magisterial whiskered
Mien, who inspires me to
Misty musings of paws on soft grass and
Moonbeams playing upon
Madcap feline lovers.
