Cat Earrings from Banshee Silver 'Pangur Ban Sit'

Pangur Bán is a poem written by a monk in the 9th Century as he observes the tenacity of a white cat. It is translated from Gaeilge by W H Auden.

The Monk and His Cat
Pangur, white Pangur, How happy we are
Alone together, scholar and cat
Each has his own work to do daily;
For you it is hunting, for me study.
Your shining eye watches the wall;
My feeble eye is fixed on a book.
You rejoice, when your claws entrap a mouse;
I rejoice when my mind fathoms a problem.
Pleased with his own art, neither hinders the other;
Thus we live ever without tedium and envy.
