Cat by Mary Britton Miller


by Mary Britton Miller

The black cat yawns,

Opens her jaws,

Stretches her legs,

And shows her claws.

Then she gets up

And stands on four

Long stiff legs

And yawns some more.

She shows her sharp teeth,

She stretches her lip,

Her slice of a tongue

Turns up at the tip.

Lifting herself

On her delicate toes,

She arches her back

As high as it goes.

She lets herself down

With particular care,

And pads away

With her tail in the air.
