Lily of the Field - An Update

“I believe in animal rights,

And high among them is the right

To the gentle stroke of a human hand.”

 

Robert Brault

 

Music: A Whole New World

 

It has now been over a week

Since I trapped Lily in that field

She has spent this time, at the vet’s

Being cared for, and starting to heal

 

Abandoned Little Lily had been starving

Her emaciated body, filled with parasites

What a difference, some TLC can make

Little Lily is no longer consumed with fright

 

She is already beginning to trust, again

She senses her nightmare is now behind

Last night, she took another ride in a car

To a couple’s home, who are extremely kind

 

Lily of The Field is now staying with Foster Parents

She’s once again receiving the love that she deserves

Sharing their home, with three other rescued canines

Who are very willing to share this sanctuary, with her

 

Her favorite pastime, is already snuggling up on the family sofa

With the man of the house, where she delights in his gentle touch

Please consider fostering or adopting, a homeless orphan like Lily

I believe that each and every abandoned canine, deserves as much

 

“I believe in animal rights,

And high among them is the right

To the gentle stroke of a human hand.”
