THE CAT AND THE MOON

by: W. B. Yeats (1865-1939)

THE cat went here and there
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
From moonlit place to place,
The sacred moon overhead
Has taken a new phase.
Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
Will pass from change to change,
And that from round to crescent,
From crescent to round they range?
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
Alone, important and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon
His changing eyes.

“The Cat and the Moon” is reprinted from The Wild Swans at Coole. W.B. Yeats. New York: Macmillan, 1919.

    Incredible how real this looks in a printed form. The printed felt sketch/art cards I have purchased, look like a real felted image, 3D like and I am inclined to want to reach out and touch the ’natural fibres’ and media used, the card looks so real. Well presented on fine quality paper and recycled brown card.

    The inspired poem for the original felt work included in the product description is helpful to handwrite and send with the card, adding a special flavour.

Such High Quality

Really beautiful card ~ heavy card stock. Detail is exquisite. Easy shopping, easy shipping. Perfect transaction. Thank you, Rowena!


Living on the wild and beautiful peninsula of West Penwith in Cornwall, UK, surrounded by the sea, I am constantly inspired by the seasons, the weather, the land and seascapes…tiny details of colour, shadows and patterns in rocks, plants, clouds and the many birds and wildlife. I am also fascinated by the energy of the landscape and its effect on the senses.

I’ve been teaching English Literature for 14 years but have recently hoped very much to dedicate more time to exploring and developing my artwork. I love to combine poetry with my work and am often inspired by lines in poetry and novels and the ‘colour’ of words as well as the rhythms, resonance and shapes of certain words together. I also like to ‘paint’ conversations and their movement and energies.

I was drawn to felting from knitting and crochet and practising with flowers, to experimenting with landscapes and sketching and love the way they grow, evolve and develop by an almost transformative magic. The colours and effects can be surprising and the layering of wet-felting and needle-felting, free from rules, can create very subtle depths. Making mistakes often results in happy accidents and the process for me is such a heartfelt one too and always one of celebration.

I am learning about ethical fleeces, different fibres and textures and their effects and also combining unusual embellishments, as well as beads, sequins, wire and stitching. In looking forward to further exploration and new paths, my dream would be to develop my work into a full-time business. I have gained so much confidence with three local exhibitions, and with selling original work, cards and prints on a regular basis.

My work can currently be seen at Morvah Schoolhouse Gallery, near Zennor, Cornwall, The Blue Bramble Gallery, St Ives, Cornwall and Strandline Gallery, Marazion, Cornwall.
