Full Moon Madness

June 28th 2012
I couldn't resist making something for this new Smudgy Antics Challenge with the new "Hallo Kitty" image I just purchsed from Smeared Ink!

I made this collage style card with the Kitty image and I typed part of the poem "The Cat and the Moon" by WB Yeats and added it to the card. I thought the poem in a poetry book I have by Yeats perfect for this Full Moon theme - I even added a "moon" to my card in the background!

The Cat and The Moon by WB Yeats
The cat went here and there.
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
From moonlit place to place,
The sacred moon overhead
Has taken a new phase.
Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
Will pass from change to change,
And that from round to crescent,
From crescent to round they range?
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
Alone, important and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon
His changing eyes.
