Lucky Kid's Dogs


                                                  I have two dogs
                                                  And they have me
                                                  We like to run around the trees.

                                                  One dog’s tiny --one is big--
                                                  The little one 
                                                  can dance a jig.
                                                  Penny is the little one,
                                                  She squints her eyes--hates morning sun.
                                                  Boston terrier, black and white--
                                                  When she is sad I hug her tight.

                                                  Zipper is the big gold dog
                                                  His winter bark is collie fog.

                                                 My dogs and I can hide all day
                                                                 sometimes we spy--
                                                                 sometimes we play--
                                                When I swing and drag my feet,
                                                They lick my face--to them it's sweet.
                                                We like to roll in blue hay blooms--
                                                Our recipe---- kid-dog perfume. 
                                                Mondays visit neighbor Alice
                                                Her house is one geranium palace.

                                               The dogs wake up before I do
                                                If I'm too slow, they hide my shoe.
                                                   orange bus honks
                                                                   then off we run
                                                                     down the drive--
                                                                          we howl with fun!

                                                 All the kids wish they could be
                                                                        the girl with dogs--
                                                                               and that kid’s me!
