My Lilies of the Valley - Poetry by Lillian Schiappa > Calico! Calico!


27 Mar 2012

Calico, Calico,

    Where do you go?

Out in the rain and the sleet and the snow.

 

Pussycat, Pussycat,

     Why do you hide?

     Where do you roam?

Will you ever make my house your home?

 

Calico, Calico,

      You're back at my door!

And I will feed you and caress you once more.

 

Calico, Calico,

     I know once more

That you will leave me again

     As you sit by my door.

 

Calico, Calico,

     Where do you go?

Out in the rain and the sleet and the snow.

    Will I ever know?
