 The First To Leave

 

He was the first to be lifted

From a litter of four

His brothers slept as we opened the door

Into the icy bright winter day

Wrapped tightly in my arms.

 

He cried until he fell asleep.

The rhythm of the road,

The rhythm of his heart 

fused as he dosed;

paws folded in,

ears lying flat.

 

At night, looking out windows,

he sees his face in each frame.

He thinks he sees his brothers,

His father or mother looking back at him.

He doesn't know

They all looked the same.

 

Like Heathcliff, gazing over the Moors,

He hears his name

From the other side of the pane.

 

And he is a puppy

Once again.

He barks in frustration

And in shame, calling for all

We shall never regain.

Here is a great compliment for you, though you would not realize that if I had not told you. I am going to send this to my daughter Carol, who is in tune with dog's emotions and is a poet besides. I 'm sure she will enjoy it as much as I have.
Wonderful writing.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS...SO UNIQUE AND TOUCHING. ONE SELDOM THINKS IN TERMS OF A PUPPY'S 'TRAUMA' OF BEING SEPARATED FROM HIS OWN. WELL DONE AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS, LOVE,
