Cats In The Garden Of Eden - Poem by Bill Grace

Intuition tells me there were cats in Eden
before the fall
not just the great creatures of the artists.
Adam had a problem,
these were prideful animals
who would bring him offerings.
Birds of fan tail feathers:
Purple, blue, red, yellow, orange
Wondrous song
taken as prey,
not food -
there was no need.
It was pride itself
the cats placed
at Adam’s feet
these treasures more worthy
for a Good Friday offering.
