Sadie Sits

Sadie sits
atop the breakfast table
spread-eagled in her favorite square of sun.

Sadie sits
stand-offish by the door,
when strangers seek to pat her tortoiseshell.

Sadie sits
a-snoozing on the couch,
her fierce white whiskers twitching in her dreams.

Sadie sits
discretely on your lap
her purring motor soothes your grumpiness.

Sadie sits
behind me on this chair
she’s taking up more than half my buttock space -

but I haven’t the heart to kick her off!

    Alie, this is so touching and your sturcture has taken the reader right into Sadies warmth while she purrs so warmly... There is nothing more soothing than the warmth of a cat when she/he will give you affection, and go where you go and sit where you sit... I know, as I have a Sadie too, , only mine is Meesha..... Very touching write Alie, but all of yours are very good..

    So you know the tongue twister Alison. Once again this is a fabulous title. I would not only love to pinch your grandson's cheeks, but I would very much like to borrow her too for a bit. They have no ideas of boundaries have they. A beautiful sunny walk through your house of love. Karin Anderson 10 of course!

    And you better not chase her off, or you will have ME to answer to! Smiles. Give Sadie lots of strokes and hugs and cuddles and deep eye messages from Auntie Di from South Africa and meeowy messages from Tigger and woofy ones from Daisy! Lovely poem and darling kitty cat!
