NAPoWriMo – Day 1

Today’s prompt for the first day of


National Poetry Writing Month 2013

is to write a poem with the same first line as another poem.

I happened to be reading T.S. Eliot’s “The Naming of Cats” at the time so I decided to go with that.

After a writing a poem that contained the name of every Cat I have ever had the pleasure of living with (which was fun to write but entirely unsharable) I came up with this.

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
Writing a Poem is impossible;
At least writing a Good Poem is.


Posted a day late. (sigh)
