The Simplicity of Kittens

I wish more people could be as easily smitten

With simple small joys, just like my kitten

Who delights to play with dirt, dust and straw

His vivacious antics just fill me with awe –


It startles me and gives me long pause

To watch twigs come to life in his prankish, quick paws


I'd love to be as easily amused

As this kitten is – he's not confused

No, he's happy with everything, just as it is

If I change my point of view and share his


I'll appreciate each moment as they come and they go

And I'll feel so much better – that much, I know!
