Only Hours Old


Only hours old,

the wee ones all are sleeping.

Helping with their struggling births,

had me worried and weeping.

Now they lay at their mother's side,

suckling their needed milk.

Mother lies there proud and weary,

cleaning their furry silk.

Such tiny, little faces

and those itty, bitty paws.

Their squeaky, precious mewing

has me in 'kitty awe.'

Smaller than the palm of my hand,

sweet miracles to behold.

These adorable newborn kittens,

only hours old.
