The Cat - Poem by Linda Ori

Gliding, gleeming, slithering
'Round about the furniture -
Silky, slinking silently
Down the stairway's curvature -
Padding quickly, quietly
O'er the marble window sill -
Waiting....... crouching cautiously,
For the chance to make her kill;
Silent - watching, deathly still
Listening for the slightest noise -
Hearing........springing suddenly,
Coal black demon, sleek and poised;
Needle-clawing, capturing
Unsuspecting little mouse -
Petty, painless duty done,
Returns the 'mistress' of the house -
Gliding, gleeming, slithering
'Round about the furniture,
Silky, slinking silently
Up the stairway's curvature.

*This is an old one I wrote when I was about 15. Frank's Kat Ku's reminded me to add it to my collection
