Apprehensive Feline

Poem

Saw her in the field
next to the house.

Talked to her softly, and tried
to coax her onto the back porch.

Left a saucer of cream for her
to partake at her discretion.

She waited until I went inside.
Then the backporch became hers.

Saucer was cleaned.
Never saw that cat again.

    Those crazy cats–a blessing, if even for a moment!
