Treasure Island

Michael Philips


Cat Lover


The white one purred and was soft.
We gave it a name.
Got hit by a car.
We buried it in back.
The kids cried.

The gray one purred and was soft.
It meowed sometimes.
Disappeared one day.
We put up signs.
The kids cried.

The black one purrs and is soft.
It walks around the house.
I skimmed the morning paper
Then went to work.

    Funny. That's a lot of what my cat does. Although, she walks arounds and meows instead of purring... loudly, very loudly. (Report) Reply

    That sums it up I reckon. We love our pets so much, but they can be replaced. Wonderfully set out Micheal. (Report) Reply

    It almost seems like you're anticipating the end for the black one too..........this is why I like dogs it's much easier to 'keep' them. :) Nice poem Michael. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
