THE DISTANT “MEOW”

THE DISTANT “MEOW”

 

I heard a distant “meow” today,

Might have been children hard at play….

From beyond the trees

Carried by a breeze,

‘Twas really hard to say.

This is a large parking lot

And some stray cats nearby we’ve got…

Perhaps my mind

Needs something kind,

To cheer me as it ought.

The “meow” I heard no more,

Just once, and none before…

Was it a child

Running wild,

Or a pussy cat I might adore?
