Deadly Cats

He stood and watched as stars appeared above Was he to die this night or live 'til dawn He laced his boots,breathed hard,pulled on his glove He had come far and now the time was gone The cat he tracked looked down as he looked up This game of chess was now to yield a pawn To calm his nerves he drank from his tin cup He heard the cat begin to move with grace Then thought of death and drank his last cool sup Perhaps he'd kill this cat in this wild place He heard again that growl from way down deep But then he heard a voice nearby in space "Put your kitten to bed and get some sleep!" 4-2-19 Contest:Quirky Tercets Sponsor:Nina Parmenter
