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.
Poetry can be silly, boring, hard to read or when about dogs, maudlin but this poem by renowned AKC Judge, is super-short and will stay in your thoughts...
Point of View
I need not read into your eyes
Of ancient Eastern rite,
As some with Siamese or Persians might.
Your love’s an open book
You look to me as I to Paradise.
My finger traces ‘‘dog’’ on frosted glass
And you, from out there on the grass,
Perceive me writing ‘‘god.’’
