My two dear house cats
They teach me about love
The way peace is taught
By a snow white dove
The smaller one is Mishtie
She is nothing but a darling
She lies down beside me curling
She does so without snarling.
Off and on she takes a big yawn
Exposing her mouth as large as a lawn
I know her huge mouth is nothing but a charade
From that mouth oozes nothing but kisses
To give away love, no chance she misses.
The bigger cat is Brishtie, she is the rain
Who drops in drops, or pours in a sheet
At night her yellow black eyes glitter like sleet
My two little cats, they pour love on me
They have turned into apples of my eyes to be.
Loving is what they teach me
Love, the most illusive of all feelings
Love, the greatest delusion of all dealings.
I am amazed how two little cats can teach so much
All I do is soak up the love by putting my touch.
Their softness, warmth and beseeching eyes
Offer me the love ~
Like the peace offered by a snow-white dove.
