10 Kittens


Ten kittens in my home now
Ten little brats
Their mothers never knew how
To catch the cupboard rats!
Their mothers never knew how
To go for hunt and prey
How the kittens would learn now
Anything other than play!
Their mothers never knew how
To pounce on a mouse
The poor kittens are all now
Just idling in my house!
Their mothers never knew how
To make their own food
Why still the lazy kittens now
Making me feel so good?

    Kittens which makes some disturbance in house but makes such happiness in their plays. A poem written in perfect animal love and it is great. (Report) Reply

    A warm and wonderful poem. Indeed what use are these soft little balls of fur and love. They are the best medicine for our soul. Their value lies in the most important things in life such as joy and love. Value which this world some times places too little importance on. Loved this poem. (Report) Reply

    Absolutely beautiful! It speaks of your love and loving eyes for these 10 kittens. You took the readers along, in your wandering thoughts about these kittens.
    May I also applaud all the poets who have been kind enough to put a comment here. I have liked each and every comment, the last one before mine the most! (Report) Reply

    I enjoyed this light, humorous verse. Nice how you shared your feelings about the fact that you just can't help but love these little lazy kittens, who are just like their mom. Very good write about human nature. (Report) Reply

    The kittens are fortunate to get such a caretaker. May be when everything is available without efforts, they tend to forget their natural talents like hunting etc, . A nice poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
