I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.
Once Upon A Time A Cat
(An Acrostic For My Daughter Hannah)
On the roof of our home
Not sat per se a cat thought about what a
Cat like him would like to
Upon his haunches ready to
Putey Tat Pounce
On another cat who
Needlessly boxed a Dandelion below
Around the lawn his
Thoughts of food returned
Inside he knew cookie crumbs
Might lie upon an empty plate
Envious of Children's snacks
Acted upon his better judgement
Crept instead of pounced
Always kept his muzzle to the ground
To catch any morsel on the way

Smart cat, keeps his head down and looks for food. At least he doesn't eat a mouse on his owner's bed like my Tas likes to do. LOL Cute poem.

A canny cat, that's for sure! You've captured the essence of cats here, Jamie. Great acrostic poem.
