Lily-Low’s morning routine
The morning windowsill
Upon the windowsill, Lily-Low seeks out that sunny spot,
Warm as the sun rises, but by noon it would be far too hot!
With breakfast now over, it’s time for her to wash and clean,
Meticulously, until there’s not a speck of dirt to be seen.
With pride, she admires her elegant coat of soft white fur,
With contentment, she settles down and begins to purr.
Her head resting upon her paws, she drifts slowly off to sleep,
When you want to go past then, with great stealth, you slowly creep.
She may just allow an occasional stroke upon her head,
Although if you disturb her, it will be her claw instead!
As the sun creeps higher, she wakes and stretches out her paws,
Then jumping off the windowsill, she wanders off outdoors.
