Birds, Cats and Dogs

Some cats I tend to understand
When looking in their faces.
Dogs I’ve known I’ve loved as well.
They’re faithful, much as grace is.
Birds – I’ve never had a bird –
Those seagulls on the beach
Or terns or plovers, pigeons, too,
They do whatever they will do.
They’re safe beyond my reach.
