Ernest Hemingway, To Crazy Christian

Ciao everyone!

Do you love poetry?

It is a beautiful thing, really... and part of the wonder is the vast diversity in poems because of the vast diversity of the authors who create it.

Each one is different in style; they create a beautiful mosaic which the rest of the world may point to as poetry as a whole.

Here is a poem by Ernest Hemingway- A good word that may best describe his works is Intriguing...

Most of his poetry is somewhere between satire, irony, humor, and seriousness.

"To Crazy Christian"

There was a cat named Crazy Christian
Who never lived long enough to screw
He was gay hearted, young and handsome
And all the secrets of life he knew
He would always arrive on time for breakfast
Scamper on your feet and chase the ball
He was faster than any polo pony
He never worried a minute at all
His tail was a plume that scampered with him
He was black as night and as fast as light.
So the bad cats killed him in the fall. 

Ciao for now!
