Florida Panther! - Poem by Denis Martindale
Florida Panther, I see you!
Your markings make you known,
That's why I need no further clue
Than photos I've been shown...
And aren't you looking thin, my friend,
So sleek and debonair?
Fit as a fiddle, end to end,
That's why I must take care...
But, my, aren't you the pretty one?
As golden as could be,
That's why you're shining in the sun
And quite beguiling me...
It's just that I respect your kind,
So feline, full of grace
And while, of course, you're hard to find,
I'll not forget your face...
As long as we can part this day,
Your portrait I can paint,
So glad, in time, when people say,
'My word, that cat looks quaint! '
When we're long gone, such paintings tell
How good you looked right now,
So, adios, my friend, farewell,
All I can say is, 'WOW! '
