Poem 2 for a Poem a day in April!
A spring rain Falls suddenly, Swiftly. Kitty and I are drenched. We seek a warm corner, I with tea And kitty Wary for danger. My fierce kitty Chases her tail. She sees it Out of the corner Of her eye. She watches. And waits. Such a patient kitty. So so slowly, And carefully, Articulating each movement, She prepares to POUNCE! For half a wild second It tries to get away. But my brave kitty Is too fast. She looks at me Proudly. No sign of penitence, Tail under paw, And I know It is for me, This gift of a tail, And I call her Smart Kitty, Fierce kitty.
