Note: This poem is dedicated to my cat Velvet that passed away yesterday...

Ode to the black cat

Who hisses and growls

That graceful black cat

That no longer prowls

Eyes wide in an attempt to see

Have closed now forever

No longer blind will they be

That calming purr that could make the toughest man crumble

Will no longer end with a tail-flick and a grumble

That sweet little nose

Can't smell a rose

Cute little feet

A meow that's so sweet

No longer inhabit this house

The black cat so brave

Must now rest in her grave

Now she can walk up that flight of stairs

And reunite with Tom

Who waits for her there...
