Elfe was the grandest of all of my cats
She dined on Reece's Pieces preferably flat

As a mother she bore babies one Bump and one Bent
Then three more before going, she got up and went

They wept- on their Journey to Cat Heaven's Gate
and Kept- their eyes closed- would not resuscitate

Twin graves dug too shallow couldn't keep them for long

They soon sprang up dancing to Death's haunting song

This is great, I lost my cat a year ago after having her since I was just a child. It hurt. You write well.

I have a friend who is a SUPER cat lover and I plan to send this to her. Be careful when you write a poem in rhyme and meter. I loved the rhyme, but your meter is ragged in places. (Too many 'feet' in some of the lines) This is discouraging for readers. The images were really wonderful. I loved picturing the kittens. Raynette
