Ye Olde Hound

“I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.”



The old Brown Dog will trod sullenly and often muzzle a frown.

For all the outdoor disturbances she has begun.

Forbid, a rodent foolishly, saunter by.

As the Ancient One, will be off like a bullet from a gun.



there are threats of ‘turning the car’ around.

My Old Hound goes for a ride…

Such as a wallflower to class clown.

With all the verbal reprimand,

I find the parental conversation,

less guided.

More one-sided.

All the dog years of tailored, training, tactics,

I must admit,

‘Ye, Olde Hound keeps chasing the ball.’

Always with playful, sorrowful, brown eyes…

And, usually,

I am the guilt ridden one.

To take the remorseful fall.imageedit_1_8479736950
