Three Adventurous Kittens
Of ivory bright, charcoal dark, and russet red in color,
played and played many days away.
They rolled, tussled, and fought
into the night and back into the day.
There was nothing the kittens loved to do more than play,
and so it was one day they wandered into a wood
where a sweet meadow lonely stood.
Once there they romped
among the wildflowers, by the babbling brook.
Eyes of emerald, sea foam, and tangerine twinkled in the golden sunlight.
Mews of mirth and happiness filled the wind.
There was innocent joy everywhere.
And when dusk finally swept its elegant wings across the sky,
the three little kittens came back home
and slept until the next dawn,
when they woke up to
Once again play the day away.
