There's a Shadow waiting at Home for me Warm and soft and watchful, And I never appreciate him more Than when it's raining and it's cold while The wind blows sheet-water in icy blasts. As I slam the car door and dash up the drive, head down, collar up, I see That glow in the darkness--fuzz-furred shape against the light, tapered ears twitching, gold-gleaming eyes Watching Waiting With a soft purr Welcoming me Home.
(Believe it or not, this is a poem though the computer made it into a paragraph! The handsome feline at left is Thibault Minuet, the "Prince of Midnight", named after the hero of my most favorite romance novel ever. It had Fabio on the cover. It was the first time I'd seen him and a day later saw him on TV and recognized him from the cover on the book!)
