My Mothers Cat
Silky, sleek, proud and strong,
Capable of nothing wrong.
Under foot, won’t be ignored
A miracle to be adored.
No broken dish or glass upset
Would give her reason to regret
All of the time and sacrifice
It took to raise the lord of mice.
*inspired by a few lines from the D. H. Lawrence short story "The Rocking Horse Winner" -
"She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and could not love them." There is nothing more miraculous than the ability to give life.
