...A Puppy From Heaven - Poem by Ken e Hall

Play Poem Video

We bought a new puppy today
A Yankee dandy doodle doggy woogie, hooray
A half Cavalier spaniel half poodle
A swanky with it Cavoodle

I can’t walk now learning to hop
An’ type with one finger non stop
See, this creature from heaven cost an’ arm an’ a leg
I may even have to go out and hop and beg.

Smells a “Who I love you” puppy smell
He’s but so blooming beautiful so in love we fell,
Sure will stand out in a crowd by far
Having jet black curly fur with a name of ‘Jett Star’,

White stand out eyebrows on his face
Moustache chest and toes of white that look like fancy lace,
He has all the toys of BeauJangles and his cuddly bed
Who is in the sky our poodle who is now one year dead,

At that time we were so sad to lose a friend
Then as life goes on and you turn the bend,
Heaven has returned his spirit in this new little dog
Surely a gentle gift from God.

    In the place of one that you lost, now you have got a new puppy, sweeter and lovelier than the previous one! So it must be a heaven sent gift as you believe! Beautiful! ! (Report) Reply

    Puppy sounds so beautiful. I love Cavalier Spaniels - my favorite. Last time I found one for sale it was $800. Needless to say, I'm still puppyless. And with yours being half poodle, I'll bet it's a beauty. He will give many hours of pleasure and fun. Enjoyed reading your poem! (Report) Reply

    I wonder why they are called man's best friend. And I cried when I saw, ''Ole Yellow ''. (Report) Reply
