pet was a yellow cat
Clarissa her name and far from fat
the family since a kitten
Liked to play with Molly’s mitten.
winter came and there was snow
Clarissa knew where she could go
Up to the
window to perch so still
Watching snow flakes on the sill!
storm came, snow piled high
Covered the window, blocked out the sky
having fun on her skis
She trudged home before she’d freeze!
window stopped to wipe the snow
Looked for Clarissa in light’s soft glow
noticed, jumped high on the sill
Rubbed her nose against the glassy chill!
chore to put away her skis
Then stroke her cat on bended knees
purred and rubbed along
The special way cats sing their song!
