The Cat That Wonders

Inda Burke


The cat floated by me swiftly.
His smoke colored fur combed by.
I bent down and saw a shadow leave quickly.

He floated by me quite briskly.
His tail flicked so quickly it seemed to fly.
The cat floated by me swiftly.

My memory of him fluttered away dimly.
I craved for my mind to tell me that was a lie.
I bent and saw a shadow leave.

His presence is feeling quite slippery.
I want to grasp his memory, it travels so high.
The cat floated by me so swiftly.

I think fondly of feeling his handsome coat touch me simply.
Our first encounter lingers and I do not say bye.
I bent down and saw a shadow leave quickly.

Every swift shadow moving makes me want him dearly.
The silky shadow makes me want to see him eye to eye.
The cat floated by me swiftly.
I bent down and saw a shadow leave quickly.
