(THE STORY OF A CAT WHO WENT SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING SHE
ALREADY HAD)

SHE LAY THERE
NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO
HER FUR WET AND RUFFLED
AND OUT CAME A LITTLE ‘MEE .. YOU’

SHERRY WAS LOST
LOST AND ALONE
SHE’D WANDERED TOO FAR
TOO FAR FROM HER HOME

SAD GREEN EYES
SHED TINY, GLISTENING TEARS
HER WHISKERS WERE BENT
HER COAT COVERED IN SMEARS

STRANGE NOISES
CAME AND WENT
THIS WAY AND THAT WAY
BUT NONE HEAVEN SENT

‘WHAT SHALL I DO
RUN OR HIDE
SEARCH FOR FOOD?
THAT RIVER’S VERY WIDE’

THE RIVER BEYOND
TOSSED AND THREW ....... GREAT WHITE WAVES
WAVES THAT BROUGHT FORTH
A PITIFUL ‘MEEE .. YOU’

SUDDENLY SHE HEARD
A FAMILIAR VOICE
‘SHERRY ........ SHERRY
WHERE ARE YOU, PUSS?’

THE RAIN STARTED FALLING
AND FALLING AND FAST
SHERRY TOOK ONE LEAP
TOWARDS HOME, AT LAST

IT WAS SO VERY, VERY COLD
AND IT DRAGGED HER ALONG
‘I’M NOT GOING TO MAKE IT
THE CURRENT’S TOO STRONG’

‘SHERRY ....... SHERRY’
AGAIN CAME THE VOICE
CLOSER THIS TIME
... TOO EARLY TO REJOICE

AND THEN SHE SAW IT
A FLOATING BROWN LOG
AND WITH ONE MIGHTY ‘MEEEOW’
SHE REACHED INTO THE FOG

WHETHER SHE HAD MADE IT
SHE DIDN’T KNOW
SHE HEARD HER NAME
BUT THIS TIME, IT WAS SLOW

‘S H E R R Y ............
OP E N ... Y O U R ... E Y E S

IT WAS MR. TOM BLACK, THE FAMILY VET
AND ALL AROUND HER, SHE NOW HEARD SIGHS

HOW LUCKY SHE HAD BEEN
TO BE PLUCKED FROM THE RIVER
SHE WAS SO VERY, VERY COLD
....... SUCH A TERRIBLE, ROUGH RIVER

A FEW DAYS LATER
HER COAT DRY AND WARM
WITH FOOD IN HER TUMMY
SHE WAS BACK ON THE FARM

NEVER AGAIN WOULD SHE WANDER
SHE HAD EVERYTHING THERE
ON THAT RAMBLING OLD FARM
‘I’M HOME, I’M HOME’, SHE MEOWED WITH A CHEER

SO TO ALL OF YOU ANIMALS AND PEOPLE OUT THERE
WHOEVER WONDERS WHETHER ‘THE GRASS IS GREENER ELSEWHERE’
TAKE IT FROM SHERRY, A CAT WHO THOUGHT SHE DIDN’T CARE
ABOUT HOME, AND FAMILY AND LIFE, SPENDING TIME IN A DARE
THAT WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN IS SPECIAL ....... SO SPECIAL

A SPECIAL LIFE TO SHARE
