Cat On The Street

She closes the door as she steps outside
At the end of her day's designing;
Stooping she greets a cat on the street
Whose bushy tail it exceeds him.
He's thrilled he is at this midnight hour
To meet with a lady of fashion.

While head to head they talk and purr,
Her handbag slung low from her shoulder,

[Hata Bildir]
