Companion and Protector.

He sat patiently waiting

The sheltered doorway

Accumulating autumn leaves

 

At times he gave the appearance

Of reading those leaves

While his master in his world

 

Leafed from page to page

Engaged in his world

Accumulating his thoughts

 

Giving the appearance

Of busying himself

While sheltered from the elements

 

Still he sits and waits

The Warrior

The Empathiser

 

The saviour at Black Dog time

Nudging in his leads direction

What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander”

 

He just wants to play

His reward

A tasty treat

 

The bond, something

Between them they celebrate

Poet, Dog, Dog, Poet.
