Old dogs, war dogs, puppies or strays,
Poetry has power to brighten our days.
Dog stories and poems are best read aloud,
To an audience of one or a theater crowd.
When I Got My New Dog
I asked for strength
that I might rear him perfectly;
that I might feed him more treats.
that I might rest easy;
that I might know nurturing.
that I might feel proud;
that I might feel humble.
that I might feel masterful;
that I might laugh.
that I might not feel lonely;
that I would feel loved.
