OATMEAL WITH WILLIAM


Eat more fiber my young doc’s rule

good for old guts, cholesterol too.

 

I bring berries and oatmeal to the morning table

but the mush isn’t close to a New York bagel.

 

Halfway through my ordeal William jumps on my lap

a dear rescue kitty safe now and relaxed.

 

He savors the oatmeal left in the bowl

licks my face in a thank you and curls into a ball.

 

Appreciative purring vibrates straight to my heart

and again I’m enlightened by four-legged smart.

 

So I’ll let this oatmeal thing grow some on me

throw in ginger, cinnamon, a slice of kiwi.

 

And age like sweet William, a grateful old soul

snug on my lap with low cholesterol.

 


William
