Sevenling (My Favourite Music)
than to snuggle between Andrew and me,
purring all night in deep rhythm.
Later, when Andrew and Freya were gone,
Levi would curl up next to me and purr.
Now he too has left me; they are all gone.
My new cat is wary, and shares the bed silently.
Yes I know, comparisons are odious, and the new cat is gradually getting more trusting and affectionate. (She did purr the other night while sitting on my lap, as I wrote two poems ago.) I love her – and I still miss the others.
A sevenling for dVerse. We were asked to write about music.
