Puppy and kitten


I had been with a kitten,
With whose love I was smitten.
Warmth wafted us between.
She left after a good innings.

I had been with a puppy,
In whose company too I was happy.
Currents flowed between us.
I left her in the beginning of the innings.

One day I had a vivid dream,
Wherein came the puppy before my avid eyes,
Wagging, her head under my cares.
The puppy, not the kitten, I rules.

The one who is in your stream
will only come in your dream.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
