Happy Dog - Poem by Flying Lemming

I’m a happy dog at the beach
If I had the power of speech
I would tell you all
To throw my ball
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
There are no new tricks you can teach
I’m bouncy and glad
And my tail wags like mad
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
My joy is always in reach
Whatever the talk
It’s the best place to walk
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
As I hear the seagulls screech
I chase and I bark
Long into the dark
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
And I don’t want to start to preach
But if you ask me
The best thing to see
Is a happy dog at the beach

    I liked the poem a lot! Because my favorite animal is a dog. Also I was just looking on here to get ideas for a poem I have to write for school. But please don't think I'm coping because I'm not! (Report)Reply

    Light-hearted, fun poem. I love dogs but don't have any way to keep one where I live.
    Well written.

    A well articulated train of thoughts beautifully penned. Dogs are theirs owners faithful and trusted friends. If you spell dog backwards, it's god! A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing and do keep it up. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply
