Ode to Ms. Stella





Sun on my fur
scents on the air
Birds chirp, wheel and zip!
Leaves crackle and blow

I am instinct and action
 blood and bone

no quarter given
the thrill of chase
capture and consume

I am lithe, elegant and graceful

 Quirky, goofy and ridiculous

the crook of my tail
the tilt of my head
the swiveling of my ears


immutable
irreverent
inscrutable

My coat is invisible
my eyes disappear 

Tiger!
Lion!
Cheetah!

I am all 
and I am none
but I was briefly


Ms. Stella O'Houligan
