Love Of A Canine - Poem by Lachlan Taylor

I don't know what I would do
without a dog about the house
It has been my sole companion
since I lost my faithful spouse.

It seems to realise at times
that I'm sad when I'm alone
And so it gives me friendship
the likes I've never known.

It brings its lead to me each morning
when it wants to go for walks
I think it's trying to arouse me
though the dumb creature cannot talk

I didn't know animals were so clever
and had so much common sense
Now I will never condemn them
from this day and hence.
