Cat Valentine - Revised

Often at midnight, she jumps on my bed; she comes to me then on her four small feet. How softly on my blankets she does tread. So beautiful is she - genteel and sweet; she reaches out her paw - her way to greet. It soothes my spirit to be petting her, for dulcet is her lullabye - her purr! This green-eyed feline beauty is all mine. Like black and silken midnight is her fur. So ladylike is my cat valentine. Oct. 10, 2020 For the Dizain Poetry Contest of Emile Pinet

Congratulations on your win. I love your line, "How softly on my blankets she does tread." I had cats when I was a kid. I can see it/feel it. A wonderful write. Enjoy your win..............

Andrea, this is such a sweet write dedicated to you affectionate kitty. I remember when my childhood cat would do the same thing especially with her paw reaching out! Best wishes for the contest

This is going into my faves. My black cat with green eyes come to me the same way. Her name is Magic and she soothes me like magic. Love this. Good luck in the contest. God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving. JB Been off line awhile. Very tired. Dr. says to take it easy when I feel myself running down. Turning 73 on the 14th. Slowing down a bit. Still working full time though.
