Steven Federle

Rookie - 63 Points (1951 / Cincinnati Ohio)

A Moment


She starts and stares
into high ceiling shadows,
alarmed by what? A sound?
Slight movement, breeze wafting
past the open door?

I look,
but poor human eyes see nothing
beyond smudged spectacles.

So I stroke her flowing fur
And reassured, she shuts sentient eyes,
trusting feline sense, and purrs.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
