Once Upon a Time a Cat

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


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
