Stray Cats and Yard Dogs

Stray Cats and Yard Dogs Empty Stray Cats and Yard Dogs

Post  mikeschultz on Fri Apr 04 2014, 14:01

As the first hour of the new day dawns
A moonlit mist hangs in the midnight air
Stray cats mark their way across village lawns

A third-shift worker scratches himself and yawns
The grass bathes as dew falls so sweet and fair
As the first hour of the new day dawns

With hopeful wishes of pralines and prawns
Living and dreaming in rural time where
Stray cats mark their way across village lawns

Dreams of four-leaf clovers and leprechauns’
Golden views of souls without a care
As the first hour of the new day dawns

The stars smile and each fractured sparkle spawns
Visions both audible and ocular
Stray cats mark their way across village lawns

A yard dog across the valley withdraws
Into its doghouse without a blanket there
As the first hour of the new day dawns
Stray cats mark their way across village lawns
