Kasey’s Poem or Ode to a Cat
Purrs of contentment are emitted by you,
You lay curled on my bed all the day through.
Movement comes only from the flick of your tail,
Methodically it thumps without fail.
Legs stretched out each and every way,
Eyes squeezed shut, keeping out the light of day.
Ears alert for the slightest sound,
Head jerking up, peering all around.
Rising, arching your back fully when you do,
Leaping glacefully to the windowsill, inspecting the view.
Green eyes alert to movements outside,
Holding court in the window, eluding a sense of pride.
Continually watching from your windowsill throne,
Colors looking regal, as you perch alone.
Curiosity fulfilled, you alight to the floor,
Curling into a ball on my bed once more!
