Moon-mad Selby, stutter-stepping Selby
Prowls on the old stone porch
The Lady is high in a late autumn sky
Selby yowls in Siamese chords.
Moon-glad Selby, sniffing whiffing Selby
Shivers by the maple tree
The golden light is falling over kitten caterwauling
Selby quivers curiously
Moon-dazzled Selby, leaping springing Selby
Clambers up a tempting branch
The lady moon is watching as Selby goes hopscotching
Scrambling in a treetop dance.
Moon-struck Selby, frisky whiskered Selby
Frolics among the leaves
Tthe round light is glowing, November wind is blowing
Selby rollicks beneath the eaves.
Moon-filled Selby, patting batting Selby
cuffs at shadows everywhere
Even as the night's advancing, the magic light's enchanting
Selby scuffles with the air.
Moon-sated Selby, happy tired Selby
Daydreams by his cozy bed
Pouncing at the stars, saying his au revoirs.
Moonbeams prancing in his head.
Moon-mad Selby, purring moonstruck Selby
Counting little moonlit sheep
The full moon is shining, the drowsy cat's reclining
He shuts his eyes and falls asleep.
Oh moon-crazed Selby, dazed dozing Selby
Enamored of the wide night sky,
Moon-kissed Selby, silly snoring Selby
The harvest moon sings hush-a-bye. . .
