From Childood - a chap book by Dave Austin


Pal was all waggles and wiggles    loved to wrestle
He could jump his backyard fence so easily
To play with the children who loved him

Perhaps the love given    on both sides that summer    was enough

Perhaps I could forgive myself someday
For calling Pal across the busy street to play
But    could I ever forget the thump
                                                       Pal skidding his nose
                                                       along the hot    pitch street
                                                       whining    desperately

Perhaps the love given on both sides would be enough
Perhaps that love would be enough for one dog’s life

    Life love and loyalty eh'daver... he trusted you did pal..I know he would never blame you, one of the richest things you have is the knowing of him he; as he was so he still is, part of the universe, (take care Joe)

    Would have been traumatizing to see, Daver! Still, Pal would not feel as if he'd been forgotten. This creates a vivid scene, I can't say I'd enjoyed it...I can't erase Pal from my mind. So, this is an excellent've certainly hit a string!:) Best wishes, Love, Mikki
