“Morning Prayer for Mice”

Buddy has perfected the art of sleeping. He’ll rise from his basket, stretch, wander into the kitched for a bite to eat and drink, then head back to his basket for a well-deserved rest. I’m jealous. Peace to your ♥ !

Morning Prayer for Mice

Bless this cat.
Bless this house.
Bless us, each
And every mouse.
Buddy hunts
With feline mettle
But only for
A place to settle.
Give us this day
Our mice hijinks
While Buddy catches
Forty winks.
