Spirit of Shadow

With such royality engraved on his face
One that never falls from noble grace
Born into the world to make his place
Outdoors wandering in some sunny hollow
In ground misshapen by old plow furrow
Slowly creeps a form low and shallow
Stealthily where small creature's burrow
Prowls a hunter in the long grass meadow
A roaming spirit of a cat named Shadow

Hi Yankee i'm a bit fascinated with your ryhming notes,its really a pleasure to read. Really its hard to maintain a ryhme throughout even as you constructed it with each lines gracefully in line coming straight down.

Boy and PN1 many thanks I also love animals and old Shadow was sure was a 'gem of a cat'. He deserves his own star I'm going to miss him.

Thanks Ayrhra -- sometimes I like some pets better than people....it's fun to write about them too

Hey Swade thanks my friend
