DESDEMONA’S PRAYER TO BAST.


DESDEMONA’S PRAYER TO BAST.
by S L Smith

As I lay me down to sleep I pray to Bast my soul to keep,
And should I die before I wake,
I pray to Bast my soul to take,
And transport it to the sandy lands Where my forbears worshipped were,
Where my ancient kin were much revered
And where the cat first learned to purr.
As I pad on velvet feet
I pray Bast will give me mice to eat,
And as I use my litter tray
I ask that she will find me play,
In her bright heaven where all cats,
Are stroked by Bast’s most blessed hands,
And bask and gambol in her care,
Remembering Egypt’s ancient sands.
As I knead upon your knees,
I hope that Bast is greatly pleased
To see her child at rest and play,
Fed and cared for every day,
And when I reach that glorious place
And gaze upon her feline face,
I’ll ask that Bast will grant you grace
To join me in eternal play.
