Author Notes
I rescued these two brothers from the pound Monday evening. They are stinkers, but I love them both. They are 8 weeks old. My dogs think they are great. My diva, female cat, has come out of hiding but is still hissing at them.
To the best of my knowledge this is a Cinquain poem. Please be gentle.

November Night
Keep thou (two syllables)
Thy tearless watch (four syllables)
All night but when blue-dawn (six syllables)
Breathes on the silver moon, then weep! (eight syllables)
Then weep! (two syllables)
