She walks with pride much like a lynx
Who knows she's more than just a cat.
When your eyes meet, she seems to wink
And seems to say "Yeah, I'm all that,
Quite clearly an aristocrat."
And in your heart, you know it's true.
This is no ordinary cat...
She is all that, and much more too.
The challenge today at dVerse Poets Pub is to write a "huitain." This is a poetic form of eight lines consisting of eight or ten syllables each, with a rhyme scheme of a,b,a,b,b,c,b,c.
When I sat down to give it a go, my muse took the form of the princess pictured above, who directed my efforts from her rightful place on my lap.
