MUTT SLUMBER


He sleeps in quiet slumber
wrinkly face leans left side
Like the old with a big number
Pitter patter, cooling rain outside.

Rib cage slowly rises
so slow no surprises
Until his ear did flicker
a fly lands on one whisker

One eye opens shutter
Housefly buzzing flutter
His jaw clamps lips ashudder
Yawns wide and seems to mutter.

The fly wakes his slumber
The mutt lifted, moved like lumber.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
