MURRAY COUNTY POETRY

Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
TO DAVID
by
John Homer Luffman
1910-1987


There's lots of kittens in the world,
Some black, some white, some gray,
And some are strip-ed all around,
And all kinds like to play.

And if you want a green one
I'm sure it could be found–
So when you're out a-ramblin'
Be sure to look around.

And if you cannot find one
I'll get one in Japan
And bring it back to David,
A reg'lar little man.


(This is a poem Homer sent to "David" while he was in the Far East during World War II.)
