Old Cat

Feline Sonnet

I am an old cat who sleeps in the sun,
Lying in heat spilled like a broken yolk,
Spreading ‘cross the floor ‘til dusk comes on,
As dreams of yesterday swirl round like smoke.
While slumbering, my paws pad paths long gone.
My nature all too red in tooth and claw
I gave no thought to those I preyed upon:
Mere games: once done there would be many more.
Dulled eyes and broken wings were part of life -
The role of predator inbuilt not learned.
So while at first it seems my faults are rife,
Judge me not harshly or let me be spurned.
Take comfort from my purr. When all is done
I am an old cat who sleeps in the sun.
