I walked my Dog

I walked my dog I walked my dog to the woods today of beech and oak and lime he chased his ball , and chased the squirrels we had such a wonderful time. I walked my dog to the sea to-day That looked toward distant lands He was ever so brave as he swam in the waves then buried his ball in the sand. I walked my dog to the fields to-day He sniffed the delights in the grass he chased his tail , followed mysterious trails, How was I to know, it wasn't to last. I walked my dog to the Bridge to-day with Rainbow hues in the sky of red and green , purple and blue and kissed my dog goodbye Author, Arlene Phillips 2017 ©

Thank you all so much I will replyshortly, still trying to find my way around the site. But I just wanted to mention that I wrote this poem when I was out walking the day after I had to PTS my two collies of 15 yrs, Zak at 3 pm and Ruby at 10 am next morning.,eighteen months ago., I went through a very deep period which is reflected in my poems of the time . I now have a little rescue Bertie , which I have penned a poem of.

What a wonderful poem. I've been to the Rainbow Bridge too many times not to understand where you're coming from. Thanks.
