LUCKY KID'S DOGS

                                                LUCKY KID'S DOGS

                                                   I have two dogs
                                                   And they have me
                                                   We meet beside the olive tree.

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

                                                  Zipper is the bigger dog
                                                  He makes collie circle 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 its sweet
                                                We like to roll in blue hay blooms
                                                Make our own dog & kid perfumes. 
                                                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
                                               When the school bus honks
                                                                     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!
