ONLY TO THE DOG

ONLY   TO THE  DOG


Dialect abandoned with education and travel  
Now only speak Geordie to the dog on walks
In unguarded moments
Awkwardly recalling how the pronunciation goes:
No longer an unhesitating morass of flat vowels
Floating on the muddy gurgle of the Tyne,
Like your long-ago first wife’s name, coming unerringly 
To your lips in the presence of  the second.


.................................................

Geordie is a speech dialect in Northern England's Tyne valley.
