Meow In My Backyard - Poem by Dr Shamim ali

It' was a stormy night;
Heard a feeble meow in my backyard
I looked outside of the window
It was cold and chill
Backyard was covered
With green and brown leaves,
Small little kitten had no where to go;
lying on the mat at the kitchen’s door,
Timorous, tiny and skeletal
I opened the kitchens door
Two round hazel eyes peer in.
Trembling with fear
Backyard was full of surplus cats
Other kittens with their moms purring and prancing
You were lying quietly
Just growling and hissing
Just complaining
I’ve never had a proper home
Please open the door wide
I stroked him, he began purring
Rolling and softly purring
I turned and slowly walked outside
Rain began to fall, .
I gathered up his petite body
And held him gently to my heart,
And whispered in his ears we'd never part.
Since then he came inside.
Named him Twitter
Now little Twitter every where
Chomping my hair u little Twitter
Climbing up my trouser u little Twitter
Hanging from the curtains u little Twitter
Mounting on my shoulders u little Twitter
Jumping on the chairs u little Twitter
Tumbling down the stairs u little Twitter
On my head u little Twitter
In my shoe u little Twitter
There's a Twitter in my shoe
I don't believe it
Just have adopted a kitten
From kitchen’s door mat
In a stormy night
