Rosie (Dog Poem) - Poem by Angela Wybrow
She howls like a wolf, morning, noon, and night,
Whenever her family, are not within her sight.
I always know when none of her family are about,
As she barks and howls, until she wears herself out.
When she became ill, her family began to worry,
So they took her off to the vets’ in quite a hurry.
From her neck, she had to have a lump removed,
And her condition, very steadily, began to improve.
For a few days, she sat feeling sorry for herself,
But, soon enough, she was back to her full health.
Her family were thrilled, that she had recovered,
As they think the world of her, and really love her.
She really loves her family, with all of her heart,
And, from them, she really hates being apart.
Their love and attention, she constantly craves.
She is well trained and so impeccably behaved.
She enjoys their companionship so very much.
Every so often, she will seek a reassuring touch.
I always know whenever the postman is around,
As, from next door, I hear a manic barking sound.
For her, playing ‘fetch’ with her ball is a real treat.
Upon retrieving it, she’ll dropp it down at your feet.
She’ll nudge the ball towards you, with her nose;
You throw it for her again, and away she will go.
Of many dogs, I’m scared, but with Rosie, I’m fine;
She has a gentle nature, and her eyes are really kind.
With Rosie, I don’t feel that I’m under any threat;
She’s one of the gentlest dogs, who I have ever met.
