Oh Kitty

By Kendall, 826 New Orleans

An ode to an animal friend.


Grade 2



Oh kitty

You make me feel calm

You make me shine like a twinkling star

You’re so soft

You feel like a pillow

Your color is as dark as the moon

I can tell you had a long day

‘Cause in less than a second

You’ll be asleep soon.

In the morning

You lick me in the face

You’ve been a good girl

You deserve cake
