Bottom Step - Poem by Della Perry
A shivering child on the bottom step
Tears on red, sore cheeks
Parents love ripped apart
Cruel fate of death.
A wet tender nose
Sad big brown eyes
Sloppy lick of salty tears
A whine of shared sorrow
Timid wag of a black tail
Warm and musty smell
A comforting touch of fur against skin.
When nothing was fair
No human was there
You were my friend
Your animal magic helped me to smile again.
