I Lay My Care

Do you have a chance at them
A chance for a peep at animals
Just a glance in the land of animal love
As I do, I lay my care at them
In this house of dogs, birds, cattle and em goats........

Do you have a chance at them
A chance for their health
As I do, I lay my care at them
In the garden of love they eat

When sun rises to the east
I become a doctor, amother, a father
To them I am their loved god
And smile at my meats
And I smile at my protectors, my all
And I lay my endless care

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It was a request from my Cousin Shalon Mwatchawi who is in grade seven, for a school competition in poetry; and its theme was on domesticated animals, on how to take care of them. So here I am with this unexpected poem for her. I hope she will do better in her competition. Good luck cousy! !

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
