Ode to an Unknown Cat

          Wouldst thou but deem me worthy
          to stroke thy regal head...
          Or find my pillow soft enough
          to grace my meager bed.

          Couldst thou be coaxed
          with bowl of milk,
          a tidbit rare,
          or bed of silk...

          Your willing servant
          I would be
          if thou couldst find
          some need of me.

          Alas, my ploys are all in vain ~
          your eyes regard me with disdain.
          Thou gifts upon thee I wouldst heap,
          You take your leave
