Where I would go


  • Cats

    Where I would go

    The thin black cat stretched slowly
    Needling the white picket fence
    Leapt down into a dark lee
    Into shadows, a mere presence
    Down to dark places that cats go
    And only cats seem to know
    I wish to go where cats go
    And know what only cats can know

    The pondering - I sense the influence of Frost in this write - his ever questioning mind. Nice work. ~Pamela

    Most men don't care for cats or, so the stereotype says this is true... I know their loyalties are very fleeting, tied instinctively to food acquisition... I'm still mesmerized at time by them, however... That laser sharp quickness which defines them... The ability to do absolutely nothing but, sleep for hours on end, then slip almost casually into this mysterious creature, where they play out the cat and mouse game with anything that looks killable... Great simple write Frost, enjoyed the read....

    I love cats. What a great subject. Personally I think you can never say enough about a sweet kitty! Great job, another enjoyable piece!

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
