Winter Solstice 2008 caught in cat's rhyme

Here's a photo of Topaz on a dark night, yet sometimes it's Lim who takes claw in paw and scratches a rhyme into his litter box for blog-posting:

With Winter Solstice here at last
we marvel how a year has passed
it seems like only yesterday
two-thousand-seven was in play
but now 2008's short day
gives up its secrets in the way
a champagne glass and party horn
mark Sun at zero Capricorn.
