A Hungry Cat Poem by Walterrean Salley

A Hungry Cat

Rating: 5.0
 


Meeeow. Meeeow. Meeeow.
Hungry. Dirty. Emaciated.
One could count its ribs.

Its meows were faint.
As the longing green eyes
Stared pleading—
Begging for just a morsel.

There, now, a bowl of milk
And some bread.
And a portion of meat.

Slowly and cautiously,
It approached the spoil
With a few soft meows—
As if to say thank you.
‘Thank you very much.'

Tamed wild.... beast had been down to the act of kindness.... If an animal could know how to soften their claws; why don't we human learn the same.... Full of wisdom and thanks for sharing a good poem.! ! !
