Our Halloween Devil-Cat
and post notes and photos about your poem like Sandra Haight.
On Halloween- so many years ago,
our grandkids had a pet named Georgie cat;
a sweet Tuxedo cat for sure, although-
could offer soothing purrs or claws combat!
Kids dressed him up in a red-devil suit-
were so surprised he did not hiss or stir.
Just slight annoyance on his face, so cute;
to dressing up, he sweetly did defer.
The glare within his gold-green starring eyes
so much enhanced his red-horned costume, that
our Georgie with his Halloween disguise
became our holiday's much-loved black cat.
But now, in heaven- where dear kitties go,
we're left with memories- and one photo.
As Georgie angel purrs neath halo-glow,
we smile- remembering his devil show.
