TO A CAT , IN MEMORY OF TAFFY & HARLEY WHO GOD TOOK IN 2010

Thursday, September 13, 2012

STATELY, KINDLY, LORDLY FRIEND
CONDENESCEND
HERE TO SIT BY ME, AND TURN
GLORIOUS EYES THAT SMILE AND BURN,
GOLDEN EYES, LOVE'S LUSTROUS MEED,
ON THE GOLDEN PAGE I READ.

ALL YOUR WONDROUS WEALTH OF HAIR
DARK AND FAIR,
SILKEN-SHAGGY, SOFT AND BRIGHT
AS THE CLOUDS AND BEAMS OF NIGHT,
PAYS MY REVERENT HAND'S CARESS
BLACK WITH FRIENDLIER GENTLENESS.

    I had a cat named Taffy years ago. She was wonderful. Our present cat, Duchess, is a long-haired calico that we got from the animal shelter.

    I love kitties. I guess because they are so independent and when you have one that loves you it feels like you've really made a friend.

    I've had a few cats, but one in particular we made into a Saint. Haha. His memory anyway. For six months I never knew what happened to him. I knew in my heart that he would never have left me. Eventually our dog found his carcass and we laid him to rest. Saint Maverick was his name. To me God made cats for us to love.
