09 My best friend

My best friend is a dog,
He sleeps like a log.
He has very sharp front teeth
And he likes to lie in the heat.
He barks when excited
And shy when highlighted.
I think he is a hero
My father thinks he is zero
He walks with me to the mills
His barks could be heard over the hills!
He has a waggy tail
And he has never wailed
He has good eye sight
And a very good bite
The thieves are afraid of him
He has never been dim
He was sold to me by a mason
And I woildn't give him up for any reason! ! ! ! !

    No wonder your dog is your best friend around. The unlikeliest of friendships could form between man and animals, that's what happened time and again throughout history. Very well done, I must admit and a surprisingly mature write for you age. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
