JUST LIKE A CAT

You came to me
  Just like a cat
    Tumbling in
      From the Wild.

You seemed so free
  As free as that
    Rumbling in
      Mind of child.

I gave you food
  I kissed your fur
    In my bed
      You laid down.

When in the mood
  You gave a purr
    Then you fled
      Back to town.

When I returned
  To our new home
    You were there
      On the ledge.

Your head I turned
  You read my poem
    You chose care
      Over hedge.
