Kitten

Playful kitten wrapped in a string
Immune to life's daily sting
Away from the abuse
And easily amused
By life's little things

Soft kitten in my arms
Curl up in a ball to keep warm
Lie in my lap
As you take a nap
Protected from all harm

Purring kitten sound asleep
Lying on a clothing heap
Resting away
Your eventful day
Lost in a dream so deep
