With your crazy eyes
The darkened skies
Terrified you shy
You remind us
How we love you
WIth your snapping jaws
crazy eyes staring
Scratchy hunting claws
The mouse, we wonder
Why we love you
So much in our house.
Then purring and rubbing
We pour out crackers
And with one last miaow
We know how we need you
to make us laugh anew
And then to see us through.
A tabby cat seeks to sit no higher
Than my office desk. Pulling fur
To carpet the floor, it’s true she’d aspire
To hunt the little bird, to purr and sleep.
A tabby cat thinks not of trees
Nor of poetry or how worlds are born.
She notices the early breeze
And sniffs scents of early dawn.
A tabby cat controls the floor.
Persons up and persons down
She has special commands for the door
She waits there and does not make a sound
A tabby cat can be alone
Yes, alone they are often said to be
But when I wander round my home
My little cat loves to follow me.
