Poem: Speak


if only she could talk

the stories she could tell

after we take our walks

of the scents that she smells


if only she could speak

information derived

as patrolling yard seek

intruders that arrived


if only she could tell

me of the ventures found

the secrets she’d unveil

my precious little hound

 June Nash

Lexie has a system.  She patrols the whole yard before returning indoors.  She finds some spots more interesting than others.  Maybe a rabbit passed by that spot, maybe another dog.  She will lift up her head and smell the scents wafting in from other yards.  As I watch her make her rounds, I wonder.  If she could only speak. . .
