WAKE! for the Golden Cat has put to flight
The Mouse of Darkness with his Paw of Light:
Which means, in Plain and simple every-day
Unoriental Speech -- The Dawn is bright.

The say the Early Bird the Worm shall taste.
Then rise, O Kitten! Wherefore sleeping, waste
The fruits of Virtue? Quick! the Early Bird
Will soon be on the flutter -- O make haste!

-- from The Rubaiyat of a Persian Kitten, by Oliver Herford (NY: Gramercy,
1993; facsimile reprint of 1904).
