The Fiddler's Cat

The fiddler's cat
keeps one claw in a treble clef--
keeps one eye on the mouse that's left--
the fiddler's cat--
white but not deaf.

The fiddler's cat
caught the note she drew from you--
knows polished maple from driftwood, too--
the fiddler's cat--
can scratch and scratch she do.

Wow. Always an amazement. NO idea how you keep doing it, but keep doing it you do. Cutting edge, pun unintended.

Smiling so big. I really love this. You had me from the first two lines.

Love the tags--and the artful, feline charm of this poem with claws. Also, laffin @ the wisdom of Kittenblossom & co.

That's what I did reading this one out loud!

I also liked how you brought the fact that white cats have a tendency towards deafness, but not the "fiddler's cat."
