001. My Dog - Poem by Jaden Knight

My dog running through the fields
her tongue hanging from gaping jaws
she slows to sniff a rabbit hole
nose close to the ground
spies a young rabbit
she bounds as it escapes

She whirls round
and spies another
but she hears my call
she races over
stopping just in time

She now lies sleeping
curled up in her bed
while she’s chasing rabbits
it’s all but in her head

    I like the poem. Dogs are best of friends with their owners, very loyal and faithful. If you spell its name backwards - it's god! . No wonder. Lovely poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report)Reply

    My Black Lab is very fond on bunnies. He is very obedient, except when he sees a bunny. I'm sure he chases them in his sleep too. A beautiful poem and lovely remembrance for Fearn.

    I am sure Fearn still romps in Heaven...Are you aware of the poem, The Rainbow Brigde, where our departed animals await us in Heaven? A nice tribute for your first written poem. I believe Fearn' s tail would be wagging in delight. PEACE (Report)Reply
