O' feline of smoke-hued stripe
Thine gray paws follow silent
After the scampering, darting
Sounds of anything yet alive.
O' hunt with grace & kill quickly
Yon footed and winged prey,
Thy greenish eyes alight with
Unwearied watching atop a wall.
O' pink-tongued and pretty cat,
Whose unreadable gaze makes
Us wonder what it is you think,
Even as you lay down to nap.
O' calm and collected kitty,
Aging even now as we watch
You stalk yet another invader
For naught but petting hands.
