On A Southern Snow Day

25 Feb

we observe a Carolina housecat’s stitched together steps,
     open the back door to a bounty of bleached
          yarn in the yard now treadled by her feet.
     Herds of long necked dinosaur clouds,
icicles on the eves, and gray paws
     quick to pick and batten January string
          are a woven hope—a single surety of Spring.

My Black Cat by Caleb Eells (age 6)

My cat is black. He likes to
Play with a fish. He’s fast.
He loves to run around the house.
He sleeps with me. I stay awake while
He plays with my feet.
The next night is the same.
