Jellicle Cats are white and black,
Jellicle Cats are of moderate size;
Jellicles jump like a jumping-jack,

Reserving their terpsichorean powers
To dance by the light of the Jellicle Moon.

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats
by T. S. Eliot

Jeremy Irons reads the entire book on archive.org from a BBC broadcast of T.S. Eliot’s OLD POSSUM’S BOOK OF PRACTICAL CATS, the inspiration for the world-renowned Andrew Lloyd Webber musical CATS.
