2008 Christmas Poem

What we have here is the Christmas cat,

friend of morning sun, which loves her back.

She explores, joyfully, the Christmas tree,

its glistening lights and ribbons blowing free-

ly in the warm air. She reaches out

to touch it, curious about

how such things can dance and sway

enticingly, how the magic of a sunny day

can be reflected in one green tree.

But for cats (and people) such thoughts can be

exhausting, and she has promises to keep.

She curls around a sun shaft once, and falls asleep.

Judith Lindenau

May your holidays be happy and serene.
