Today’s prompt for the first day of
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.
