The Sentiment

December 18, 2007
By Danielle Zigon, Carmel, IN

Lightly tapping across the floor
Paws with nails too long,
Whispering by a couch on fours
Delicate hair rubbed wrong;

Silently preparing to strike
Joints are cracked and bowed,
Heaving atop cushions alike
Bright hazel eyes aglow;

Bristly licking a familiar face
Tongue is coarse to skin,
Purring across a limb with grace
Throat humming with affection.
