Plight of the furry dog
by Lisa Ann Noe
morning sunlight like a ball of fire
brings to me much desire
the rain has visited for days
I’m happy to see the golden rays
A rainbow spreads a bough in the land
Colors bright like a wonderland
Crispy blue, pink, and yellow
As bright as an angel’s halo
fragrant flowers scenting the land
I pick them and hold them in my hand
A bouquet of roses sweet and perfumed
The weather did not affect it, it’s not consumed
a kitten sits on the window seal
watching the world and forming ideals
a hound whimpers and then he sighs
you can almost see the tears in his eyes
for he’s been left out in the rain
though now it’s sunny they’ll do it again.
Care not for him, because he’s cold and wet
Remember always your special pet.
Whether the rainbow shines or the rain falls
Remember the dog and the cat and their souls.
Regardless, the wiry dog with the freckled face
Is happy to be here in this place.
