Passing Days with my dog Sam

The end of the day splays on my window sill,
Complete with soft rays from the setting sun.
To cause long shadows from an old oak tree,
To be painted on my shirt home spun

Night creeps in at its own pace.
The windows open, feeling a cool breeze.
My dog Sam and I rest in our cabin's space.
Sam with a bone, me with a beer, crackers and cheese.

Today has been calm, us just setting here,
Watching the quiet movement of another day.
Through our window saw a passing deer.
Sam barked once or twice, deer had nothing to say

Night falls dark and stars brightly shine.
Some covered by clouds from a North prevailing wind.
A chilling fog could cover the coastline,
And keep all the fishing boats locked in.

I may fall asleep sitting right here.
With Sam my companion and friend.
Hope when we wake in the morning the skies clear.
So Sam and I can do it all over again
