    Chang Tuan's Cats

    Scholar Chang Tuan was fond of cats,
    And had seven of them,
    Wonderful beasts with wonderful names.

    They were:

    Guardian of the East
    White Phoenix
    Purple Blossom
    Drive-Away-Vexation
    Brocade Sash
    Cloud Pattern
    Ten Thousand strings of Cash

    Each was worth several pieces of gold
    And nothing could persuade Chang
    To part with them.

    After Wang Chih, c. 1100 C.E.
