Lower yourself till your feet hit the earth

Frown all you want
Tie some string 
Toll me

We use to walk together…in the mountains…by the sea
before the sun would rise each day…my golden retriever…and me

We chose to name him Whitman…people assumed we loved poetry
and though we do love a good rhyme…he was named after a bakery.

Premium Member Veteran's Day Snowstorm
My golden retriever romps through the patio door
Shakes his behind
Cotton-balled as a woolly sheep in need of shear
From the rogue snowstorm on Veteran’s Day
Wind straightened American flag
Red white and blue eyeliner applied to an old lady’s powdered face

And after the...Read More

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
No question about it especially our Golden Retriever version
We've got one of those
So I make her wear clothes
Of course Annie our Golden isn't wild about this diverion

Our golden retriever, is a golden conniver
Knows how to act all cuddly we've discovered
To get what she wants

So appealing, really difficult to admonish her

Holiday Season Paean
My door is decked with holly and pine,
The larder’s stocked with fancy food and wine.
Tiny lights twinkle on bannister and tree,
Dozens of cookies to bake, if there’s time free.

Knitting needles flash for each gift,
Presents need wrapping, but my spirits lift,
As...Read More

Sad Shiloh
Sad Shiloh trots nervously across the frozen ground, 
Hesitantly, then decidedly, sidling up to a new lady.
At long last has he a loving mistress found?
Will she rescue him from this place, so penned in and shady?

This golden canine, with body...Read More

The greatest doggie in the world is our “Annie”
An almost human golden retriever, it's really uncanny
Her vocabulary is wide
By our wishes, she abides
At times she's naughty but we put up with her hanky panky

Sitting shirtless, her head rests in her palm 
Beside her on center wall

Before the sunrise
Of Thanksgiving morning in Michigan

I test out loud

A few of my poems to my golden retriever
Who sits and listens with his head cocked
Confused at my knee…

"Did he say the word…walk…yet?" Panting.

Well, after that hidden rehearsal
And...Read More
