Woman and Cats

This woodcut, entitled Woman and Cats, was created by American printmaker Will Barnet.The elegance of the cats in this work recalls the “good old days” in Egypt when humans thought we were divine.

[1962, Will Barnet, Woman and Cats, woodcut printed in color

Two cats
One up a tree
One under the tree
The cat up the tree is he
The cat under the tree is she
The tree is a witch elm, just incidentally.
He takes no notice of she, she takes no notice of he
He stares at the woolly clouds passing, she stares at the tree.
There’s been a lot written about cats, by Old possum, Yeats and Company
But not Alfred de Musset or Lord Tennyson or Poe or anybody
Wrote about one cat under, and one cat up, a tree.
God knows why this should be left for me
Except I like cats as cats be
Especially one cat up
And one cat under
A witch elm
Tree.
