My Cat Has Taken a Lover

| 29 Apr 2013 | 01:11

    At night when I have gone to sleep

    Another world begins For my cat has taken a lover.

    He hops up on the window sill Waiting patiently until

    The pale enchantress shows her face

    Then he begs her come and share his space

    At last she rises higher than the trees

    Dripping with stars in an icy freeze

    Then the silent one with enigmatic face

    Woos my soft-pawed cat They fuse together in her pool of light

    As with trembling whiskers and slitted eyes

    He purrs the night away. Lynne Digby, Goshen
