Little Lad and Big Dog

In the woods amidst the fog
Were a little lad and his big dog
Lost they were with direction at odds
The little lad pawed and trudged through the sod

With no end in sight to the little lad's fright
Little lad panicked he'd be here all night
So the little lad bawled and endlessly called
But no one answered his piteous squalls

Not a soul was 'round  to hear such a sound
So the little lad crawled and tried to recall
Which way they came in on this so-called
Adventurous walk of little lad and big dog

And then little lad saw with loads of awe
That mommy had found them with help of the law
He thought she would scold and prepared to be told
Of all the punishments his future would hold

But mommy rushed to him, her joy uncontrolled
She kissed his face, her fears untold
And out of the woods amidst the fog
Mommy took home little lad and big dog

    Your poem is very good, have a look at the rhyme scheme. I rewrote my poem because I had written couplets. Shoud be abab cdcd efef ghgh. Click on the form tab above your title to see an example and explanation of the form. Wether you rewrite it or not, it is a very good poem and I enjoyed reading it. I kept my original one and just wrote another instead.

    April this is excellent tale in rhyme. The dialogue read smoothly with meter. It should place well in the contest. Warm Smiles, Connie
