THE PLAINTIVE CRY

THE PLAINTIVE CRY

In the middle of hubbub

From dinner downstairs….

I hear a plaintive cry across the hall;

“Marty Cat” behind his door

Was wondering why

His owners went out for a prowl.

I softly answered as I could

From outside the door where I sat….

Comforting a lonely cat!
