Christmas Day Cat

In frozen sunshine
I carried flowers to the lake
Where I met an orange feline
Who cried and mewed
And put his paw
On my scuffed leather shoe

I heard his pitiful need
Saw his scarred stray face
But had nothing to feed
I drove up the lake road
To a brimming store
Hurried back with a load

Between my shoes the cat ate ham
As I sat on a bench
And thought how lucky I am
That I have when he has not
And at Christmas time
I could share what I got
