For the following poem I had a somewhat different approach: I wanted to use some uncommon words to describe cats, so I looked on the web and found a list of "the top 100 most beautiful words" (or something like that). I chose the following to use for the poem:


And here is the result.

Any ailurophile will gladly tell
Feline creatures rule and excel
Lissome bodies with opulent fur
Become cynosure for the debonaire

Felicity embodied with chatoyant gaze
Regal poses full of epicurean grace
Capture even a pauper's whim
Chances of eluding cat's charm are slim.
