Listen In Miaow

amber in the bathroom window2

The tick tick tick tick of little paws on lino
Precedes the brush of fur against my legs
She rubs her head over my feet
Mine mine you’re all mine
Let every other cat know it
A loud miaow erupts as she circles
Round and round the swivel chair
Then the tick tick tick tick of little paws
As she leaves in search of adventure
From the other room I hear
The soft thump of tabby cat
Landing on the bathroom window sill
Ready to eavesdrop on the neighbours
Oh what secrets she could tell me
If only I’d learned to listen in miaow
