Dear Little Dog


Dear little dog
you can wag your tail,
the postman has come
and brought you some mail.

That tabby cat
that you so liked to chase,
sends you a postcard
from his new safe place.

The neighborhood butcher
has sent a bill,
for those juicy chops
and the meat for the grill.

There is also a note
from your usual walker,
he can't come today
as he is playing soccer.

And an invitation
to come and eat,
with that darling poodle
at the end of the street.

The postman is here
with all these and more,
but you're barking again
and he won't come to the door.


It is so nice to be back
I've missed you all!

  26. Ha-ha! So very cute! I've been going through boxes that have water damage due to a leaky water heater. I used to write little poems all the time and had a whole folder of them saved. Anytime someone had a birthday or other celebration, I'd write them a poem and draw a card. Sadly, I had to toss them all because of mildew. It's been quite some time since I wrote anything.

    1. That is too bad, Tammy. I used to write birthday poems as well but that well has dried :-)

  29. Hey! You've been gone longer than I have! And you brought a sweet little dog back with you ;) How lucky to have his mail delivered to his door ... my mailman delivers it across the street to a big fancy smancy community mailbox (as of last year). So my poor dog has to be extra vigilant to remember to look for the little mail delivery truck to park across the street so he can bark and bark and BARK! at the mailman from the front window. It takes a long time for the mail to be delivered in all those tiny little boxes (bark bark BARK!!).

    1. It is the window seat. You're not supposed to sit there without a book. I'm a Jane Eyre fun.

    2. I doubt little Jane Eyre had such lovely accessories to brighten her window seat in the awful house into which she found herself. Your dog is a lucky one.

  58. Glad to see you are back in blogland:) And many thanks for sharing this cute dog with SEASONS! I wonder if you also like to knit? Am bringing it up because with knitting there are different textures than crocheting and sewing, and it seems you like that...no pressure, just a question! Now you're back, hope to "see" you next week with one of your lovely inspirations:) Wishing you a beautiful rest of the week!
