A variation on the dVerse ghost cat theme that isn’t a Quadrille.
I see you on the roof at night,
When moonlight silvers smooth red tiles
And hear your cry, so distant now.
A slender shadow in the grass,
You sniff the rose we planted, where
We laid you in the cold, cold ground
And watered it with warmest tears.
Soon, I tell your phantom shade,
We all will fallen petals be.
Sleep, ghost cat, songbirds are calling,
Sleep in rose-sweet petals falling.
