I can't wait for the sun to set, but it's taking its sweet old time! My master takes me hunting for raccoons after dark, and I’m anxious to sniff out their trail. A plethora of odors assault my sensitive nose confusing my brain, but once I smell my master's coonskin hat, BAM! We're off to the game with my tail wagging. I'm excited; and let out a soulful, impatient howl. Then almost imperceptibly, dusk drops a curtain of darkness, the moon rises, and I hear my master's footsteps! He pats my head with a familiar friendly hand and a shiver runs up my spine to the tip of my tale. I'm jumping around, eager to get underway, when master presses the coonskin hat to my nose; all other smells slip away and I concentrate on that one scent alone. I feel invigorated, I so enjoy being part of the team! (Personification) 06,29,2019 Pick A Title, Vol 6 - Personification - Poetry Contest 1.) The Bloodhound Sponsored by: Edward Ibeh

Emile, this is a gorgeous personification poem. I forgot that a human had to write it and type it. I kept thinking "what a brilliant hound dog!" Well done indeed! I think you just won this contest.
