Ima Ryma Poems
A Dog Of Few Words
A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'
A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'
'What can we do for you today? '
'I want to send a telegram.'
The clerk handed the dog a note.
'You'll have to write it out somehow.'
The dog took pen in teeth and wrote,
'Bow wow wow, bow wow wow, bow wow.'
The clerk read what the dog had penned.
'One to ten words have the same fees.'
'There's eight words now, so you can send'
'Another 'bow wow' if you please.'
'No, ' the dog said, 'Just between us, '
'One more would sound ridiculous.'
Dreams On High
An eagle at Lincoln Park Zoo
Is home because of injury,
Soaring, I can no longer do,
But still dream of what it could be.
I dreamed I was in far Dubai,
To set a record, humans planned,
From a building half a mile high,
Down to the ground to human hand.
I dreamed I did this feat on air,
