My sleeping cat
I see a sleeping cat at the end of my bed
shaped like a crescent moon, what dreams in her head?
with legs stretched out and her tail curled round
she almost looks dead because she makes no sound
if you look carefully, her breath is very slow
such a little minx, but I love her so
ears pricked up as she lays at rest
looks so content, if poked she would protest !
may look asleep, but she knows what`s going on
don`t let her fool you, she thinks it`s such fun
I see a snoozing cat who is watchful of the day
peacefully resting, but alert in every way !
