Title: The Cat Metamorphosed Into A Woman

A bachelor caress’d his cat,

A darling, fair, and delicate;

So deep in love, he thought her mew

The sweetest voice he ever knew.

By prayers, and tears, and magic art,

The man got Fate to take his part;

And, lo! one morning at his side

His cat, transform’d, became his bride.

In wedded state our man was seen

The fool in courtship he had been.

No lover e’er was so bewitch’d

By any maiden’s charms

As was this husband, so enrich’d

By hers within his arms.

He praised her beauties, this and that,

And saw there nothing of the cat.

In short, by passion’s aid, he

Thought her a perfect lady.

‘Twas night: some carpet-gnawing mice

Disturb’d the nuptial joys.

Excited by the noise,

The bride sprang at them in a trice;

The mice were scared and fled.

The bride, scarce in her bed,

The gnawing heard, and sprang again, –

And this time not in vain,

For, in this novel form array’d,

Of her the mice were less afraid.

Through life she loved this mousing course,

So great is stubborn nature’s force.

In mockery of change, the old

Will keep their youthful bent.

When once the cloth has got its fold,

The smelling-pot its scent,

In vain your efforts and your care

To make them other than they are.

To work reform, do what you will,

Old habit will be habit still.

Nor fork[2] nor strap can mend its manners,

Nor cudgel-blows beat down its banners.

Secure the doors against the renter,

And through the windows it will enter.
