Dreaming of Greatness

After a morning of preying on birds and mice

She realized an extended nap would be nice

The wooden deck was as warm as it seemed

My cat didn’t waste time to fall asleep and dream

Of parading through the garden as would someone royal

Her friends and her rivals all bowed as they were loyal

She climbed up the fence and perched atop tall and proud

The queen of the yard stretched forward and roared aloud

I watched her as she dreamt of ruling the world

And didn’t have the heart to wake my furry little girl

She eventually woke up and continued her daily routine

Which included brief naps and dreams of being Queen.
