I took a walk near the end of the day
And at one point a stray
Tortoiseshell cat came padding next to me
No collar did I see
His marvelous coat was speckled brown-black
I bent to scratch his back
He mewed and purred with obvious delight
His eyes were green and bright
As I straightened up he raced down the street
On his soft, furry feet
He didn't glance back, the tortoiseshell stray
So I went on my way.
