Poem: Speak

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. . .
