The Canine Family - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

The canine family of four
At my sister's abode
Are a wonderful hoard
Affectionate to the core.

A Pomeranian fluffy white
Is the cute little ‘Ruby'
She is unparalleled in beauty
With eyes dark and bright.

Ruby's bushy tail
Curled into a round ball
Draws admiration from all
When she past does sail.

A sturdy dog—a brownie
With great looks of royalty
Is one of raging beauty
And is lovingly called ‘Tony'.

Heart to heart he feels
And perches still with cocked ears
Awaiting each member, and gears
For the thud of their heels.

With a Pomeranian fur—so silky
To the spotless white Ruby
Was born a jet black sonny
Who was christened as ‘Mikey'..

He is regal—without par
And as Aurangzeb—the king
He at Tony—his father, does fling
And is at loggerheads, ever waging war.

The last of the doggies four
A smart pup, kind and loving
With a small figure and tail a-wagging
Is the cute little ‘Puppy' dear.

She too is a cute blackie
With a tail taken after her daddy
Puppy madly adores her mistress—Nimmi
And follows her ever for her company.

The canine family of four
At my sister's abode
Are a wonderful hoard
Affectionate to the core.
