A Cat - Poem by Louise Bizzari

There was A Cat left in a house
Whose occupants long gone
He comes and goes
With spotted nose
To wander there alone
Through vacant rooms
He hops and zooms
No ball of thread has he
Past moldy walls
Down doorless halls
He plays with hearty glee
Up cobwebbed chairs
Down rusty stairs
No whiney tigers gloom
He darts about
With fearless snout
In dark, in dust and doom

Louise Bizzari (14 yrs)

    Being a cat-lover, I simply had to track down this little jewel!
    Hope that you are still writing, or will resume soon.

    Lone it was, yet a whole house it had inherited;
    it was a well blessed cat.

    Charming narrative about a cat enjoying his freedom in a deserted house. Loved reading the poem.

    This is a wonderful poem, Louise. Happy that admin made it poem of the day.
    It was a true pleasure to read. By now you must be 25 or 26.
    High time to start writing poetry again when you had already so much talent at 14

    A CAT
    A wonderful rendition and having read some of your other poems you seem truly gifted. If you wrote this at the tender age of 14, it is even more amazing. Keep writing and enjoy the accolade of being the poem of the day. Well deserved (Report) Reply (Report) Reply
