A Poem for a cat……..
Dear creature by the fire a-purr,
Strange idol, eminently bland,
Miraculous puss! As o’er your fur
I trail a negligible hand,
And graze into your gazing eyes,
And wonder in a demi-dream,
What mystery it is that lies,
Behind those slits that glare and gleam,
An exquisite enchantment falls
About the portals of my sense:
Mendering through enormous halls,
I breathe luxurious frankincense….
