L. K. Thayer

Rookie (Fargo, North Dakota)

He Owns Me


he is my bliss
I do not want to
betray
his tenderness
he is my
containment
his body rises
with each breath
tail curled
I am his
father
I am his
world

    What a great tribute to a faithful friend. Indeed, you have inspired me to write one to my horse..I mean dog..he is just big as a horse! Somehow, I believe a poem about one's dog is very telling... of the master. Barb (Report) Reply

    He owns only your heart. Great poem! Thanks, I really know the feeling you express so well in such few words. Unconditional love goes both ways. His heart is owned too. (Report) Reply

Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
