Shakespeare for Hamsters

IMG_4207
You have food?..

A poem for Bella, my Chinese dwarf hamster in honour of National Pet Month, which coincides with the month of Shakespeare’s birthday…

Carpe Diem

O hamster mine, where are you roaming?
O stay and hear! your pumpkin seeds coming
That can be placed in your coconut bowl.
Come little Bella, you’ll soon be eating.
Journey’s end in seeds and carrots meeting—
Every wise hamster owner doth know.

    • To burrow or not to burrow: That is the question;
      Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to hoard
      The seeds and vegetables placed in my coconut,
      Or to eat everything at once as they arrive.
      And by eating, end all tunnelling?
