Stray Kitten; Beautiful Koi
Fur as soft as a goose down bed Button nose and small round head Catching mice and playing round Then at night they sleep so sound Walk all over you when trying to work Opening food and see their ears perk Once a stranger and now a friend I’ll take care of you until the end
Watch as they grow The magnificent koi fish swims to and fro Down in the shallows, down below These wonderful fish have nowhere to go Never once do they complain As they swim in the rain Nothing to let go, nothing to gain Beautiful koi They swim round and round Sit next to their pond Get lost in the sound
