One for the Dogs

My mother suggested I write a poem about dogs.  What is there to say?  I kept things very simple; it could fit on a Hallmark card.  The upside of predictable rhymes is that it took about five minutes to write.  Perhaps next week I'll try something more challenging.

One for the Dogs

The wagging tail
The lolling tongue
The love of play
The need to run
The friendly eyes
The fluffy fur
A few things that
I love dogs for

I'll talk to him
In loving tones
He'll be right there
When I'm alone
I'll brush him soft
I'll throw his balls
We'll go for walks
'Cause we're best pals
