Robert Frost's Acquainted with the Night ~ the Cat Version

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have danced in the rain -- and back dry again.
I have out stalked the whitest moth in flight.

I have looked down the greenest forest lane.
I have passed the hoot owl on his seat
And winked my eye, quite willing to explain.

I have stood still and lucked into fresh meat,
When next to me, an un-intending mouse
Climbed over some branches, and gave me a treat.

I was not sad for the mouse, nor did I begin to cry.
'Tis the law of nature. 'Tis the law of might.
O' pale judge, shiny against the sky,

Proclaimed me one with nature, neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.
