Default what a nice poem

A Cat in My Lap
by Karen Boxell

I know I have a lot to do,
So many things - see them through.
There are clothes to clean, grass to mow,
Cookies to bake, seeds to sow.
But I really can't do all these things in a snap.
Because, you see, there's a cat in my lap.

He stretches and rolls and gives me a wink,

From his sleepy gold eyes - just a small blink.
I smooth his long tail and tickle his tummy,
He yawns and purrs to tell me that's yummy.
The telephone rings. The paper boy taps.
No move do I make. There's a cat in my lap.

Bright sunlight dances across the floor,
To warm my small friend just a bit more.
A happy prisoner am I in my chair -

Some moments of peace - not a care.
I think I'll take a little nap,
With this soft, furry ball, a cat in my lap.

Very nice indeed! It just goes to show that sometimes, we just need to relax every once in a while.

Very cute poem. Although, I'm more likely to have a dog in my lap than a cat.

Indeed a very nice poem. Does not have to be a cat or a dog only. It could be any animal on your lap. As long as you love them and you are taking care of them and they are giving you the comfort you need.
