oliver herford on kitten fur

From the always-delightful Oliver Herford's 1911 collection The Kitten's Garden of Verses: a kitten's take on the fine June weather...

Winter and Summer

In Winter when the air is chill,
And winds are blowing loud and shrill, 
All snug and warm I sit and purr,
Wrapped in my overcoat of fur.

In Summer quite the other way,
I find it very hot all day, 
But Human People do not care,
For they have nice thin clothes to wear.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the world is like a stew,
And I am much too warm to purr,
I have to wear my Winter Fur?
