This Is For Tilly


http://thelaughinghousewife.wordpress.com

I found a suggestion in my comments from Tilly to write a poem about Cali, our kitten, so I

A six-week old kitten.

will give it a try.

 

Silence can be so heavy

With only a television box

Hearing my brother’s tears

And darning his old socks.

Aging process moving along

Can create a cloud of gloom

I need some company here for me

In this dismal little room.

I was asked a question today

From a friend who lives near by

If I wanted to adopt this kitty

And take the sadness from her eye.

I jumped right in with an answer

And said oh yes I will

For I prayed to God this question

For my lonely heart to fill.

Cali, the kitty, is her new name

She craves the love I  give

She looks at me with adoring eyes

And has given me reasons to live.

Her dances of play with her toy mice

Has brought me laughter more than once

She kisses my nose to show me love

My prayer was now answered from the one above.

  1. I agree with Julie – simplicity is good. I love poetry, but when it comes to the kind you have to analyze to figure out what it means, then I’m lost. I love Edgar A. Guest’s poetry because of its simplicity and hominess. Your poem, as well as your kitty, fit that category nicely. Well done.
