O Iris, glittering apple of my eye!
You dainty silver imp, just like an elf
You magic’lly appear upon a shelf
So arcane and so acrobatic’lly high,
Then, like a snow leopard, you nimbly fly
Say eight feet down or so upon my bed
To land right on the pillow near my head,
My will-o-the-wisp, my elusive butterfly!!
You flutt’ring flower-petal, by the breeze
Of your own inspiration you’re impelled
To flit across the world with dazzling ease,
As free as alabaster clouds that scull
Across the firmament, never excelled!

I was going to post that part and Barb you did it.
Would love a Cat, more of a Dog person, but apparently I am the BIRD LADY!
