    Sandpaper Kisses


    He lived in a little
    Wooden house with
    Nary a little mouse.
    Cissy was his reward
    In things adored.

    She even caused his anger
    To be dismissed,
    In the gentleness of
    Her sandpaper kiss.

    And then there's the little one,
    Who lives down the street.
    Their little kerosene heater,
    Provides very little heat.

    But Harry is a big warm furry bliss,
    When he curls up beside,
    He gives a sandpaper kiss.

    There are few things in the world,
    More sincere than this,
    The warm dewy feel of
    A sandpaper kiss.

    Cats give hope for the truth
    Of many wishes,
    When they give us those gentle
    Sandpaper kisses.

    ooh Joyce

    you've given me such a new appreciation for my children's cats, Panda and Felix....when they show me love. From now on I'll smile when I feel the kneading of their padded paws, and their 'sandpaper' kisses on my skin. :)

    Thanks for this one Joyce! I enjoyed the read!

    Realizing that this may be an odd place for a cat poem, I step out on faith. Glad yall enjoyed.
