      To you, Mei Breu, my faithful cat
      who on the railing sleeps
      loudly snoring, round and fat,
      yet still your balance keeps.
      You'll sleep away this rainy day
      that has nothing to bring
      and then at midnight, wide awake,
      you will decide to sing.
      And sing you will in variant tone
      in notes both low and high;
      soprano to alto to baritone
      in opus you'll decry
      my need to sleep the night away
      a dreadful waste of time;
      for don't I know it's best to play
      twixt midnights lengthy chime?
      For hid between the ringing peal
      that stirs from mantle clock
      are magic moments that reveal
      and points of view unblock!

      Awake! You'll sing in vibrant mews
      Awake and come to play!
      We haven't any time to lose
      for soon it will be day!
      Arise and stretch your furry legs!
      Arise and swish your tail!
      Oh, come and rise above the dregs
      who'll soon enough prevail!
      Come and chase the moon with me!
      Come and have some fun!
      We have so little time, you see,
      t'will soon be Twelve-o-one!!
      For in the time `tween this and that
      is Bastet's wondrous spell,
      within, you too may be a cat
      and human form excel!

      But morning comes too soon for me
      to join your fanciful flight;
      if I'm asleep, then let me be.
      Perhaps some other night.
