If A Cat . . .
Has ever stroked your heart with its purr--
then you will celebrate that little gift today.
To all who celebrate in other ways today--
like birthdays-- Hurrah! and enjoy.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
by Emma Lazarus,
