HIS ONLY FRIEND - BRITON RIVIERE CONTEST

Briton Reiviere has portrayed
A boy of low means, no shoes to his feet
Clothes are of rags, dirt his blanket 
Except for a scraggy mutt.
His only friend, his warmth, protector.

Together they survive
Whatever life throws at them
So tired, so hungry, so friendless
They are a unit within themselves.

Sun will be their salvation
A river is their bathroom
Their watering hole
Place to keep cool

A boy and dog of nature
working as one reliant on each other
Their food provide by mother earth
fruit, nuts, healthy but not always filling
The dog is adapt at finding himself mice

They answer to no-one but themselves.

    this is a sweet and wonderful poem, Seren. Weren't you the judge who had a lad and his dog contest? Your own poem fits that theme superbly!

    You brought a Briton work to my attention that I had never seen before! Very realistic and down to earth poem, well suited to the characters in the painting. Reminds me of Tom Sawyer. I like the visible bond between boy and mutt.
