Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

Are both correct or only one? Maybe I would use something similar to give the name to a company.

    I think the first one...the meaning can change If "pirate" is an adjective or a noun. What do you want to say? Can you be more specific? What is your idea, "an illegal cat" or "a cat of the pirates"?

    :o it seems that "The pirate cat".

    LOL

    It could be that the pirate cat is a cat, but the cat pirate is a pirate who steals cats.

  • Thank you all for your answers.

    @Paolo12 I am looking for the right expression for a cat that makes an activity (for example a cat that is a pirate or a cat that is a jeweler etc.)

    What about the pirate's cat? Or am I confusing the matter?

    No, I am not talking about a cat owned by a pirate.
    What I am looking for is the best way to speak of a cat that is a pirate (or a cook, or a stonecutter etc)

    Pirate Cat with capital letters denotes that's his title @Unnoticed_bypasser.
