Our Hearts Leap Up


    (after William Wordsworth)

Dear pretty kitty on my lap
    In all your purry glory:
So is it since you came home;
So you made our hearts your own;
So in play or sun-filled nap,
    Our favorite furry story!
The cat is heartbeat to the home;
And we will swear our family
Bound to you with love eternally.


NaPoWriMo Day 6! Stacie has the Real Toads writing poems that children might enjoy. So I wrote this for my kids and our cat, Sammy. Meow!
