perfect time

the penny whistle blows
and the dog begins to howl
almost in time

it’s music in the morning
at our place

I can hear the tone improve
as practice pursues perfection
and the dog
can almost hold the tune



I’m not singing out loud
just breathing sounds
beneath my breath

inside my head

this is a kind of music
and I believe
I’m keeping perfect time
when I sing

woo-oo-oo woo-oo-oo

it feels quite perfect
