A Poem For You

maggie girl

Maggie Magz

 

I’d love to be able to write you a poem
To let you know how much we belong

 

Side by side every day

 

Side by side all the way

 

 

 

maggie at water

Maggie as a pup at the lake

 

If only I could find words to write

 

How I feel day and night

 

But it is hard to write with paws

 

Webbed they are but there is a flaw

 

No pen will fit between my claws

 

 

bruce and bone

Bruce enjoying a bone

Just take me for a walk today

 

Feed me treats and I will stay

 

Right beside you not pulling away

 

Just tell me nicely to sit and stay

 

 

maggie snow

Enjoying the snow

 

I promise not to be a rat

 

I’ll never again chase the cat

 

If you will feed me a bone or two

 

I will fetch for you a brew

 

 

maggie cap

Playing dress-up

When you come home at night

 

I’ll be waiting with delight

 

Wagging my tail to and fro

 

Just let me out to play in the snow

I know that it’s not polite to drool

 

Can’t help myself I am a dog you fool

 

 

I can read your mind with ease

 

I know what you want and how to please

 

But at times dogs just have to disobey

 

You took me to the vet and now I am spayed

 

You always fill my water dish

 

Sometimes I wish you’d throw me a fish

 

I am a Newfoundland dog you see

 

At one time fish were free for me

 

The liver you make my breakfast with

 

Is really quite delicious

 

However, if you could just double it up

 

You would make me a happy pup

 

So sorry that I shed like a bear

 

You would too if you had this much hair

 

I do not like to have my nails clipped

 

I would rather eat those potato chips

 

I have a wish for my birthday this year

 

I hope you don’t find it is too dear

 

But I would really like a steak

 

And please oh please bake me a cake

 

chips

This poem was written in 2011. At the time we had 2 Newfoundland dogs, Maggie, and Bruce whom I miss so much. Loved them with all my heart.
