Crystal and Leslie

Above:  The Original Draft of the Poem

Image Source = Kenneth Randolph Taylor


Take comfort, my feral feline neighbors,

mother Crystal and daughter Leslie,

for you are my favorite two creatures;

this has become our reality.


That you stretch out and curl up, even sleep

at my back door makes me quite happy.

I understand why distance you still keep

from human beings, even from me,


but at least you have become more present

(and more often) than previously.

Your visibility alone has meant

a great deal to my darling and me.
