Those cats are so full of kindness and love
that they sit at the window and watch over the birds
that come to the feeders to eat unafraid
beyond the glass in the holes in the wall.
They purr and they sleep and they watch the outdoors
for the beauty of nature and the love of all life
that they obviously have when I see how they watch
and watch all the comings and goings not ten feet away.
If the glass were to fall and those cats went outside,
I’m certain all would be well in the yard
as cats and birds would rush together as friends
as I’m sure they have longed to do for years upon years.
