Thoroughly Poetic Thursday



Welcome Poetry Appreciators!

Here we are again on a Thursday working our way through the alphabet and writing a poem about SOMETHING starting with the “letter of the week” !    Today we are writing about the lovely letter “D”.    Let me dip into my fertile ginger brain and come up with something “D”-ish!


The world of cat food is so big

Whether picky eater or kitty kat pig

I myself am getting picky

Some kitty food just plain tastes icky

Seafood is what I do prefer

Mom opens a can and begins to stir

I wait and wait until she puts down my dish

I can already tell it’s some kind of fish

Shrimp, crab, sardines or trout

I’ll clean my plate there is no doubt

I eat it up then clean my face

This ginger boy is no disgrace!

I’ll take a nap – so full I feel…..

My nose will wake me for my next meal!

By Sammy Kimmell, Boy Poet

I squeezed off another gem right?   Right?   This is getting to be tons of fun……….next week we’ll be at “E”……………..I’ll try to come up with something swell and in the meantime, why don’t you put YOUR poem in my comments so everyone can see I’m not the only WRITER in the blogosphere who can come up with a fab poem JUST LIKE THAT!    Even better, you can join in on your own blog and write a poem with me every week.   You can put your link in a comment HERE and people can follow to your blog to read your literary masterpiece!

Well all that thinking, creating, and writing has made me sleepy………..I do believe it’s time for yet another of my 87 naps a day……………YAWN………………….


Wake me when it’s meal time again Mom will ya?

Love, Sammy Shakespeare

    • Hi LouLou! Thanks for visiting AND thanks for your poem – dreams are what make the world go ’round! You Mom is very talented and you are very adorables. We signed up to follow you…’re living in one of my Mom’s FAVORITE places…….it was the first stop on her honeymoon a zillion years ago with my Dad!

      Hugs, Sammy


    • Oh lobster – I could eat three or four or eighteen of those I think……..We do need to keep lobsters (and almost everything else but trees) away from your Dad and his chainsaw though!!!!! EEEEEEK!

      Love, Sammy


    • Life is not all about bacon (although you’d THINK it was considering how often I since its’ praises!)…..seafood is fun too (and delish)….I worry that people think all I do is eat bacon!!

      Love, Sammy


  1. Bravo bravo standing ovation Boy Poet
    You knocked this out of the ball park!!
    And you expressed my sentiments about seafood….I see if and I eat it
    Hugs madi your bff


    • HAHAHA…….I really don’t care for beef or any other meat in the kitty food department HOWEVER, if Mom wants to give me a slice of deli roast beef, I will NOT turn it down – in fact I love it!

      Love, Sammy


  2. Sammy, that poem is G-R-E-A-T! Our little haiku is pretty pathetic…mom’s drinking wine was not a good thing. Here it is for those who don’t visit Kitties Blue. We are going to start thinking about an E poem now. At least F will be easy…we can write about Fiona.

    Tired of our toys.
    Waiting for our BlogPaw’s swag.
    Delayed…train derailed.

    Have a great snoozy day. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


    • I do love your haiku! I also hope Mr. postman brings you that SWAG – from what I’ve seen there was a whole lot of GREAT stuff being distributed at Blogpaws this year! I’ve been meaning to ask about dear Fiona – hopefully continuing to do well with her SubQs and blood work? Mom just got back from the grocery store – she got more bacon……I have trained her well!

      Love, Sammy


  3. SAMMY your Ode to DINE is Truly Devine.
    We think you did just FINE.
    Next week is the Letter E fur EAT.
    Bacon is a MEAT.
    So you can extol its Flavor,
    A taste we Love to Savor.


    • Frankie and Ernie! You’re a pair of PERFECT POETS! I love your poem and I also like the idea of using “EAT” for next week’s “E” day! So you boys are bacon boys too? YES! Be sure and take a copy of my “Bacon Club Badge” from my sidebar……….we baconators must stick together!

      Love, Sammy


  4. That is a great poem Sammy, I know the Trout Talkin Tabbies are really going to love it. Thank you for the badge, we will add it to our post right now and eventually put it on the sidebar if I ever figure out how to fix that. XO


    • Glad you enjoyed my poetic offering for today! I’m not sure if Mom or me will do fill-ins tomorrow but one of us will……glad you enjoy writing some poetry with me – I’m having FUN! “E” is next Thursday – I’m already working on my poem.

      Love, Sammy

    • Hi Tabbies! Glad you’re liking my poetry day every week…it’s fun….and THIS poem about your Grampaw dude is FABULOUS. I love cats with tood….I’ve tried to develop some of that myself over the years (!!). Thanks for posting my badge too……..I want everyone to give poetry a whirl! I thought you’d like this one because it’s about SEAFOOD which is my second love after bacon. Have a GREAT weekend-oh!

      Love, Sammy


    • Hi Travis! I will TRY anything but not necessarily EAT anything…….almost everything Mom puts I front of me I’ll happily give a lick but sometimes I run away quick instead of taking a bite. But I’m happy to TRY everything!

      Love, Sammy


  6. Oh yes, Sammy, you produced a true gem!!! What a great poem – we are all now very hungry for some fish:)

    Woos – Ciara and Lightning


    • WELL DONE!!!!! I know a whole lot of people were surprised my “Dining” poem didn’t mention bacon BUTTTTTT seafood is my other big love so I decided to devote “D” to that…..sooner or later on another letter of the alphabet the chances are Bacon will make an appearance though. I do love the stuff. I also LOVE y our poem!!!! Many of us are BACONATORS aren’t we??!!

      Love, Sammy


    • HAHAHA…..that’s a great poem……….I guess cooking for a vegan is a whole different experience than for a carnivore like my Dad! Thanks for being a poem-pal……..I’m loving everybody else’s poems!!

      Love, Sammy

    • Hi Seville! Glad you liked my poetic offering this week… week is “E”…..I’m considering my options. Mom got a can or two of “BEYOND” cat food which had sardines as part of the ingredients and it was DY-NO-MITE. I know other kitties have tried “real” whole sardines and loved them. I think your peep needs to get you a sardine to try – you know, we all should try NEW stuff once in a while!

      Love, Sammy
