Mi Mao Tom’s Spring Song
(kyoka)

§

oh gentle geisha
how sweet is your smile
mi mao
sing more for me just a while
your heady ways make me sigh

§§

here at your feet
oh fine gentle creature
this lowly tom
must admire your subtle forms
I mi mao for your love

§§

spring has come
oh sweet lithesome willow
your forms excite
this lowly creature … mi mao
come to visit with me tonight

§§

ah the wind and rain
shall reign tonight my dove
if you’ll come to me
I’ll stroke your lovely back
oh – how we shall purr – mi mao

This kyoka was written thanks to my friend Jen who brought my attention to this wonderful Netsuke of Two Cats a 19th century Japanese wooden miniature – Information about the piece and the photo can be found HERE and more information about Netsuke can be found HERE.
