ODE TO A DOGGY’S PAW
By Ezekiel J. Krahlin

The sweetness of a doggy’s paw
That touches you at night,
Says everything you need to know
Of goodness, love and light.

The silver tufts between those pads,
Those nails that click the floor,
That touch upon your knee so kind:
Need I really ask for more?

The fluffing up the blankets
To make the nest just so,
The twitching of those little feet
In dreams I’ll never know,

The lying on his back
With paws like drooping figs,
The squirming for that belly rub,
Those silly, happy jigs,

The sweetness of his touch imparts
A friendly wish to be
Always happy, always here,
And always close to me.
