Стихи про грызунов

Гениальная picas_so своими концептами животных (и в частности мышей) натолкнула на стих Эмили Дикинсон. Стих, хоть в чём-то и женский, как раз как я люблю — короткий, аккуратный и по делу.

Papa above!	
Regard a Mouse
O’erpowered by the Cat;	
Reserve within thy Kingdom	
A “mansion” for the Rat!	     
Snug in seraphic cupboards	
To nibble all the day,	
While unsuspecting Cycles	
Wheel pompously away.

В источниках и собственно у Натальи встречен альтернативный вариант “wheel solemnly away”, но “pompously” мне как-то в данном контексте больше нравится.
