the good day

the little dog said

today is a good day
for barking
rreough! rreough!

as she lay full stretch
in the aromatic herbs
beneath the sun

she kept an eye on the door
in case her mistress should appear
maybe to go walking
or failing that put out a hand
to throw ball for awhile

oh it’s a grand day out in the sun
for barking

rreough! rreough!

and to lie on the ground
on your back
with legs in the air

everybody in the universe
should have such a sunny day
out in the garden
when there’s no better thing to do
than woof good-day
to the world
