My dinner is late! (Cat poem)


A hungry cat is waiting

My dinner is late!

What do you mean by coming home so late!
You know I should have been fed by now.
I saw you creeping through the garden gate,
Hoping that I would not see you somehow.

But I watched you creeping round behind,
I heard you quietly open the backdoor.
So just here I will sit for you to find,
Beside my bowl, on this cold hard floor.

Can’t you see that I’m getting thinner,
All caused by this one hour delay.
If you could please now serve my dinner,
As I am starting to fade away.

My food is in the cupboard just there,
Let me eat before I fade from view.
Afterwards I will come to your chair,
Climb up and share a lap with you.

I will settle whilst you stroke my fur,
Maybe even brush me with my comb.
I’m a forgiving cat, so I shall purr,
Even though you were so late home.

Purrfect sleeping place (cat poem)


Alfie knows where there’s a good place to sleep

To read Lily-Low’s first poem:
The Morning Windowsill

Purrfect Sleeping place

It’s too hot and Alfie can find no shade in his garden,
But next door, he knows just where the perfect spot can be found,
And since he is a cat, he asks for nobody’s pardon,
To climb up onto the fence and take a look around.

He knows that Lily-Low claims this garden for her own,
As her windowsill looks out upon all there is to see.
But this afternoon, her windowsill is all alone,
For in this sun, it is far too hot a place for her to be!

In stealth, he climbs down and begins to slowly creep,
Going around the bush towards that old garden seat.
Soon he will be able to fall peacefully asleep,
Deep in the shade, away from all this summer heat.

Alas, no sooner had he settled down for his snooze,
The backdoor opens and Lily-Low wanders outside.
Oh dear! Which direction is she now going to choose?
Although if he stays still, then he may be able to hide.

Lily-Low looks around, she already knows he is there!
Her white coat shining brightly in the afternoon sun.
Her green eyes saying quite clearly ‘of you, I am aware!’
And Alfie knows that it is time for him to get up and run!

Back over the fence he retreats as fast as he is able,
With a contented purr Lily-Low reclaims her own space.
But in his own garden, the sunshade is now up by the table,
So he can sleep peacefully in his own shady place!

Coby is Awake (cat poem)


Coby has woken up!

See his first poem:
Coby is sleeping
(It has the same rhyming structure as this poem)

Coby is awake

Coby is awake, and will now partake,
On a journey to the garden outside.
Going out the door, he will then explore,
All those places where creatures might hide.

Behind the flowerbed? Or under the shed?
He will see if there’s anything to be found.
All creatures must hide, when he is outside,
For it’s not safe when he is roaming around.

Pausing in his walk, is it time to stalk?
For suddenly there’s something coming his way.
Oh, it’s just a leaf! That’s such a relief,
For he really did not want to hunt today.

Now back through the door, he crosses the floor,
To the spot where his food should always be.
He yells out to all, they come to his call,
He starts purring as they prepare his tea.

The Cat in the night (Cat poem)


A nighttime stroll!

The cat in the night

Moving silently through the deep dark night,
A suit of pure black with four boots of white.
A white tuxedo to finish her off to perfection,
A beautiful sight in the moonlights reflection.

Quietly she strolls through the garden deep,
Whilst the world around her is fast asleep.
Then through the door that is only for her,
She enters the house without causing a stir.

Upon the bed she settles down with a yawn,
To sleep in contentment until the new dawn,
Until her staff awake and see that she’s there.
To give her a stroke and show that they care.
