Ode To The Cat In The Window
Last night I saw you,
While sitting on the sill.
Staring through the window,
Causing my heart to still.
A feline so sleek and lovely,
A form so full of grace.
Markings aesthetically pleasing,
A perfectly perfect face.
Your eyes are bright and glowing,
belying a brilliant brain.
I feel if I can’t have you,
I will surely go insane.
Your coat is so gorgeous,
Like the finest Chinese silk.
I could drink in your whole being,
Like a saucer of sweetest milk.
Your presence lightens my heart,
It brightens the darkest day.
It dispels all the mists,
It chases away the gray.
Now I understand Valentine’s Day!
How could I have been so dense?
All that mooshy, lovey stuff
Is finally making sense!
Your sly grin and knowing look
Has melted my icy heart.
This chance encounter in the night
Has given me a fresh start!
But alas, I am mistaken.
A victim of self-deception.
The wondrous vision in the window
Is simply my own reflection.
