A winter storm has hit us,
Wind, snow, hail and rain.
Curled up on the couch with my kitten,
So you know that I’m feeling no pain.
Christmas morn was dawning,
Thought I heard Santa Claus.
My mind was just confusing things,
What I felt were Sammy’s claws.
Sammy sleeps with Daddy,
I think that’s very sweet.
Not sure how much she loves him,
But he gives off body heat.
Winter is upon us,
From that you cannot hide.
But I stay warm all through the night,
With a sleeping kitten by my side.
The turkey is in the oven,
Stuffed with a marshmallow peep.
Sammy and I are in my recliner,
Falling fast asleep.
Socks and t-shirts fly through the air,
And fresh from the dryer, such a pity.
But that can happen when doing the wash,
And you trip over a sleeping kitty.
She stopped mid-step, eyes opening wide,
This was it, The Crack of Doom!
C’mon Sammy it hasn’t been that long,
Since I have straightened up my room.
Sammy purred and then she yowled,
Catnip toys make her go crazy.
Usually we play “Chasing the Ribbon,”
But today, I am too lazy.
