The Cat

My mom came to visit and brought along some of my things...I totally forgot I wrote this poem! I wrote it for a creative writing class in 10th grade...That's 12 years ago now (geesh! I'm getting OLD!) But I couldn't think of anything to write...my kitty inspired me when she fell off the TV...Here's how it came out.
The Cat
She steps gently,
Paws poised,
Never making a sound.
She steps quietly.
Careful not to make a noise,
Careful not to make a peep.
She gracefully leaps,
One object to the next.
Never off balance.
Stretching out,
on the T.V. top,
All eyes are on her.
Gracefully stretching,
Gently sliding,
She hangs her head off the edge.
Gracefully stretching,
Gently sliding,
She makes her decent.
But it is too late.
She slips off the edge,
Falling towards the floor,
Landing on all fours.
Stunned,
She looks around embarrassed,
Hoping no one saw her.
She sits and cleans her paws,
Calmly,
Then walks away.
Her head held high,
Her tail held high,
As if she MENT to do that.
She steps gently,
Paws poised,
Never making a sound.
