D For Dog


the way oh dear you wiggle your tail
the way you comely sit
i like the way you wet the poles
i like the way you shit

and your charming tongue that’s always out
and ears that point the sky
when I see you next to me
every woe, they just all die

i love the way you dig a hole
i love the way you fall
i love you when you walk like us
i love you when you crawl

i trust you like a rising sun
i love you like a star
i know all words have failed to tell
what a lovely being you are

    Perhaps he wakes early up with man.
    He goes to sleep late like the latter
    And lives a life without any love for his fellow beings...

    But we like this dog all, Kanav. (Report) Reply

    Tongue in cheek humour explains your love for a doggie, how man would be if his faithful mind was the same as the dog...great fun read...regards (Report) Reply

    The last two lines of the poem tells us much more about the man's best friend, the dog, than what anyone can describe. Dogs are know to have rescued people from drowning, fire, etc. etc. A beautiful write. (Report) Reply

    Dogs really are man/woman's best friend and everything they do even to the way they take a crap is great about them. I lie this one it's really simple and to the point with a hint of comical relief but it's also a very true! Nicely done kanav (Report) Reply
