I decided to write an ode to my puppies, my two sweet Japanese Chin dogs who are my constant companions.
Sleeping princes, lounging quietly
What are your dreams?
Do you dream of grassy lawns, of leafy walks?
Of singing birds? Of chattering squirrels?
Of yapping dogs? Of meowing cats?
Or do you dream of special treats
Of chicken pieces, of greenies, of bones
Of toys to play with?
Of what do you dream?
Or do you merely sleep
And rest to rise again
To play once more.
