Mustard Dogs


Black dogs among the mustard plants

Like huge, speckled bumblebees,

Foraging not for pollen but for scents,

A whiff of friends held on the breeze.


Their shiny fur dappled with golden dust

As if a fairy has participated in the fun,

Their morning romp intrinsic to their day,

Our habitual pleasure in fog or sun.


A coronet of pollen on their lush coats,

The sweet comfort of their smiles,

A halo of yellow reflects their good hearts,

Naïve to human duplicity and wiles.
