Treasure Island

Angela Wybrow

(Salisbury, Wilts, UK)


Other cats, they just pass me by,
But you seemed keen to say ‘Hi! '
We had never met each other before,
But you were keen to offer a friendly paw.

On top of the bed, I saw you lazing;
Into my eyes, you were intently gazing.
When I beckoned and called your name,
Your eyes lit up like a flickering flame.

You jumped off the bed and stood at my feet;
Petting you, I said ‘Oh, you're just so sweet! '
You seemed really keen to make a new friend;
I had to go, but I hoped that I'd see you again.

With you, I feel that I've made a connection;
Your soul seems to revel in peoples' affection.
You seem gentle and mild and so laid back;
To make people love you, you have a knack.

I hear that you are obsessed with your food:
That for eating, you're eternally in the mood!
Sitting by the window, you love gazing out:
Watching birds in the tree, I have no doubt!

With your previous family, you felt so alone,
But now, you are living in a happy home.
By your new family, you are totally adored:
And by them, you'll never ever be ignored.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
