Stray Cat Scat

Stray cat, cool sleek alley cat,
A vivid tan, with mottled black,
In soft moonlight, creeping back,
To the scented nights of lilac!

One eye of brown, one of blue,
The shadows always welcome you,
And you go where they take you,
And yowl on the starlit avenue!

Pretty cat, you stray alley cat,
Upon a tall fence, singing scat,
Free to roam when skies are black,
Not caring if dawn ever gets back!
