A Puppy’s First Trip - Poem by Marie Glass
I’m so warm and cozy in this sack
Only it jerks around a lot.
Now that I’m so big and all
I wonder what I all got.
You see my home is err so tight
I can move only a bit,
And tails and paws and such things
Upon my face do hit.
I must be one of several more
Whatever it is we are,
And it’s my guess they too can’t move
At least not very far.
Will I be all cramped up like this
Forever and a day,
Or is there more to life then this
Dare I hope to play?
Then one day all took a change
As pressure played it’s toll,
And all the tails and legs and such
Begin somehow to roll.
Wow! ! I can’t believe the room
My legs would be so free,
If I could just burst this sack
The others had left with glee.
“What is that! ” the last pup thought
As he slipped to a new world,
But now he could not breath a bit
As all his world unfurled.
Then he felt this warm thick piece of skin
Lick his face quite hard,
Till all the sudden he could breath
It all caught him off guard.
But oh he loved the warmth it gave
As he felt cleaning taking place,
All the slim was going away
And wonder of wonders, so much space.
Stretching his little legs so far
And smelling things so new,
The answer came then floating in
There is more to life for you.
Soon he’s risen on his feet
And finds that he can walk,
“Oh joy, I see others just like me
“There’s more to life for me.”
