Cat and Mice

Lying on the bed
Ruminating
Lovely thoughts appear
In fan’s gentle breeze
Jasmyn lands
Scatters thoughts like frightened mice
Purrs

My cats and I think your poem is lovely. (In the fourth line, what is the word that begins with f? It shows strange symbols here.)

There is apparently no way to determine what any given computer reads as far as symbols go.
Wording that line: "In the gentle breeze of the fan" of course would have ruined the rhythm of the whole poem and would have made it just a paragraph.
I copied it from my notes in Works, I think that is the trouble, have to put it in notepad.
Just as an experiment, I will copy it to notepad and post it again, see what happens
