Riku-My Dog


My little white dog stayed with me
Only for a couple of years
A sudden illness took him away
And left me full of tears

I ran with him and played with him
In the lawn and in my bed
He shook his tail and licked my face
' I too love you', he said

In the photos that my daddy took
He looked so sweet and cute
What a sad Birthday it was for me
To find him cold and mute

I pray to God to give him peace
My love for him shall never abate
A share in all my birthday cakes
In future too my Riku shall get

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
