Cat Sith – April 28, 2014 – Quatrain Fairy Poem

Alfred Emile-Léopold Stevens – Belgian painter and author.
“Allegory of the night”

Fearsome feline of Celtic lores
Stalker of the Scottish moors …
She walks alone in darkest night,
On blackest fur glowing patch of white.

Her eyes are lamps that mesmerize.
Walk on moonlit nights, you might realize …
‘Tis she’s hunting there among the crags,
What you thought, just bits of shadowy rags.

Nine times she changes into a lass
When she wants to walk in daylit grass,
Among mankind in bright soft silks,
Aseducing the lads in their tartan kilts.

She is the Cat Sith, a fairy sure!
Though some think she is not so pure,
For her fur’s the color of sable black
And for her curious changling knack.

Inspired by the very informative post written by Flossie Benton Rogers entitled Mythic Monday: Cat Sith.

    • It was entirely my pleasure! When I read your post this morning I couldn’t resist writing about this adorable legend. Thanks for following, I’ve followed you as well.


  1. I don’t know if I just can’t see straight this morning, but what do I click on to follow your blog? I love poetry, by the way. There was a period of time when I wrote one a day– usually a cinquain. May I repost your post at some point in the near future?


    • hmmm…interesting…I used to have a side bar, which has disappeared…on the top of the blog next to my avatar, there is the normal follow widget. Ok…at least for now I’ve put a follow blog widget at the bottom of the page above my guest list. Guess I’m going to have to do some spring cleaning here. I’m glad you brought this to my attention.
      As for reposting this, that’d be very nice indeed. Thanks, maybe we could reblog at the same time 😉
