Outside by Caleb Eells, age eight (and Dad)

12 Jan

Miserable, miserable sad cats,
uncomfortable and depressed,
their ears are damp and folded flat;
their tails are limp and wet.

The day is cold as it is long
and makes their faces frown;
their bodies huddle in a throng
and snow keeps coming down.

They sit—their thoughts are on the dog
where fire warms his hide;
they think, if he gets up to go,
we’re locking him outside!

    I find myself identifying with Caleb’s work so much that now I wonder if I am stuck at 8 years old? I hope it’s just that he has a similar style. Whatever it is, I enjoy it very much 🙂
