++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Crystal, Pat, and Leslie,

feline neighbors feral,

whom I feed and gladly

watch through my rear windows

+++++

Crystal, the protective

mother, guards kittens cute;

one child is all white;

the other wears a suit

+++++

of fur black and white.

The babies romp outdoors;

all consume many a bite

of feline food courses–

+++++

fish, dry food, and canned food.

They drink fresh water too.

My caring attitude

tells me what I should do

+++++

for these creatures of God

who, although they never

will be pets, to I nod

and resolve to pamper.
