Thread: Seeking a poem...

  1. #1

    Seeking a poem...

    Years ago, my grandmother used to buy "Good Housekeeping" magazine and "Woman's World" and I would always scan them looking for recipes and always noticed in the back of the magazines, there were Ads to sell books, merchandise, picture frames, etc. and I saw a framed poem for a "cat's prayer" which I think contained the words "...no more pitter patter of your paws"....and "...you're in heaven now..." (or something similar)

    Can someone help me find this poem? It was one of the best I've ever read and would love to have it!

    So, if anyone has some of those old magazines, scroll to the back pages and look for me?...please?

    Thank you!

    I just did a search and it took me to this website that has many cat poems. Here's the link: http://www.catquotes.com/catpoetry.htm.

    Yes, I saw that list and poked through it, too! Most poems including "pitter patter" I have found are about growing children!

    This poem I am looking for is over 20 years ago in the Woman's Day or Good Housekeeping magazine...it was in the back pages and it was a framed poem with a picture of a black cat playing with a ball of yarn (from what I remember) in the upper left corner...

    Hmm, do you know anyone at your local library? They may have all the old issues in their "periodicals" section, and you could pick a year and peruse some!

    Here are the Contact Us links to both magazines. If they have digitized their archives they just might be able to track it down.

    Empty
    That's all I feel
    My loyal friend
    No more pitter-patter
    Of your paws on the floor
    No more gentle nudge against
    My leg to let me know you're
    Right there
    No more head scratches
    Your favorite!
    No more nipping at my shins
    To let me know you're hungry
    No more tapping my face
    To wake me in the morning
    When you think I've slept long enough
    No more guarding me from
    All the bad things you perceived
    You were always so protective.
    Just a huge vacancy
    And the tears
    Welling in my eyes
    And warming my cheeks
    Rest in peace
    Sweet Xada
    You will always be alive
    In my heart
    Until we meet again
