No Shame

    Newer Older

    When afternoon drags
    And ivory clinks on
    Resting on rags
    Under master’s bad song
    Your ears start to creak
    To notes that are wrong
    There’s no shame in that,
    You should howl along!

    When rain beats the shed
    Like a wicked old drum
    A sigh from the desk
    Makes you nose her thumb
    Her fingers are dry
    Her stroke is glum
    There’s no shame in that
    Let her tickle your tum.

    When trying to catch
    Your master’s gaze
    As they potter around
    The garden maze
    A shadow is cast
    In which you sit proud
    There’s no shame in that
    You should sit there all day.

      I now know how a dog feels through your words....and the shadow of her head over the her trusted companion is very cool. I enjoy your poems, you are gifted. That long nose made me smile too. Thanks for sharing!
