Harold Monro wrote some wonderful poems , Here is one I think you might already know.

SELIGOR'S CASTLE HAROLD MONRO
AND MICE AND BOYS PRESENTS


CAT'S MEAT
BY HAROLD MONRO



Ho, all you cats in all the street;
Look out, it is the hour of meat:

The little barrow is crawling along,
And the meat-boy growling his fleshy song.

Hurry, Ginger ! Hurry, White !
Don't delay to court of fight.

Wandering Tabby, vagrant Black,,
Yamble from adventure back !

Slip across the shining street,
Meat ! Meat ! Meat ! Meat !

Lift your tail and dip your feet ;
Find your penny - Meat ! Meat !

Where's your mistress?  Learn to purr :
Pennies emanate from her.

Be to her, for she is Fate,
Perfectly affectionate.

(You, domestic Pinkie-Nose,
Keep inside and warm your toes.)

Flurry, flurry in the street -
Meat ! Meat ! Meat ! Meat !

No
time spent with a cat is wasted

As you might already realised I have already put this poem on the same page as Shadwell, the Hairy Goblin. But since then I found out quite a bit about Harold Monro that I thought was very interesting for you older kids.

Felix Thinking!

Harold Edward Monro (March 14, 1879 - March 16, 1932) was a British poet, the proprietor of the Poetry Bookshop in London which helped many famous poets bring their work before the public.

Monro was born in Brussels, but his parents were Scottish. He was educated at Radley and at Caius College, Cambridge.[1] His first collection of poetry was published in 1906. He founded a poetry magazine, The Poetry Review, which was to be very influential. In 1912, he founded the Poetry Bookshop in Bloomsbury, London, publishing new collections at his own expense and rarely making a profit, as well as providing a welcoming environment for readers and poets alike. Several poets, including Wilfred Owen, actually lodged in the rooms above the bookshop. Monro was also closely involved with Edward Marsh in the publication of Georgian Poetry.
