My Dog Lady

My dog is full of life and glee
But gentle and kind as should be.
She sits beside me day and night.
I have no fear that she will bite.
When troubles come we see them thru.
We live in a house of silvery white and golden hue.

And then she died.
Oh such a day.
The sorrows were heavy.
The tears they ran.
I am now alone in our golden span.
Remember her well.
Forget her not.
To honor her memory I chose this spot.
Remember her well.
Forget her not.
The joy she gave.
The love she got.

This was the 1st poem I wrote for school at 11 years old. My 1st dog
and constant companion had just died.
Now 50 years ago. By Carol Eastman

    I love my doggie I love him true, I know if you could see him you'd love him too. This was the first poem I ever wrote and I was nine years old. That was 43 years ago. My dogs name was snoopy. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Fortunately you now have Dragon. When did he first appear?
