He wrote a great, funny poem called 'The Retired Cat.' Here's a tiny bit of it: 'A drawer impending o'er the rest, Half-open in the topmost chest, Of depth enough, and none to spare, invited her to slumber there; Puss with delight beyond expression Survey'd the scene and took possession.'

Good Scrabble word!

She ate some pomegranate seeds, which doomed her to spend four months per year underground with old Hades. Her mom Demeter (the Earth goddess) mourns during those months, which is why we have winter(according to the Greeks).
23. To systematically oppress or harass?

Answer: persecute

Let's wipe out religious persecution. I also wish that church and state would be absolutely separate throughout the world.

Answer: perpetuity

I believe this word appears in last wills and testaments.
25. A word that has come to be synonymous with a pretty shade of purplish blue?

Answer: periwinkle
