To Sukkah, Soft and Sharp
by KiWi from http://www.poetryandpastry.wordpress.com
To my cat:
Your fur is downy and your tail is tipped;
Your velvet ears are curled and flipped;
Your whiskers reach, and branch and brush;
Your paws are padded, your footsteps hushed.
Your belly is squishy, your nose is pink;
Your eyes close slowly whene’er you blink.
I log to touch your every tuft,
For cats are soft, so very soft.
Your claws are hooked, your talons barbed;
Your teeth are pointed to do prey harm.
Your bones are strong, your jaws are firm;
Your prey is caught, and cannot squirm.
Your eyes glint metallic, quick and sly,
But your hiss is fiercer than your eye.
You hide a distant, feline heart,
For cats are sharp, so very sharp.[Original poem by KiWi from http://www.poetryandpastry.wordpress.com]
