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



maggie ball cap

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

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.
