Enough, with Cat

Our cat

What It Takes
by David Budbill

Enough
of a house
to keep
the bugs and rain
out
in the summer,
stay warm
in
in the winter.

Books
a few
musical instruments,
a garden,
silence,
some mountains,

maybe a cat.

    Ha! Another thing in common…we have identical cats!! 🙂 A house is not a home, without a cat!!

    I love this poem. Thanks for introducing me to Mr. Budbill. Looking forward to reading more once my library holds come in.


  4. Yes! It wouldn’t be called home of there weren’t books and a cat to sit on them when you are trying to read. 🙂
