As I consume my home-cooked meal
So well-deserved over hot stove I steal
A forlorn look with eyes so attentive
I forgot the dog and his incentive!
As I cheerfully bound for the outdoors
I slam the door of indoor bores
And danced in the leaves gracefully
And forgo the dog so hastily!
As I lay me down to sleep
I close the door of every peep
And in the morn I hear a creek
Forgot the dog as he licked my cheek!
