MY PUPPY, NO MINE (Poem #249)

A cute little puppy was running up and down the street
When two little brothers came running out to meet.
I saw him first the younger boy started to shout;
But, I'm the older one the other boy said with clout.

I can feed him and walk him the younger seemed to beg,
As the litle puppy in his excitement went (oops) on his leg.
Then the boys laughing both soon agreed.
It may take two little boys to fill this little dog's need.

Jean Gorney Claim this poet

I wrote a poem for my daughter and new son-in-law and read it at their wedding reception in 1997. People have been encouraging me ever since. I try to write up-beat and happy poetry. My poetry has been in many anthologies, newspapers, church bulletins,etc. I won a small contest once. I self-published some small(4x5)books with about 16 poems in each that can be used as greeting cards. I include an envelope for mailing. Check them out on my FB page under Jean Magill Gorney. more…

    I love dogs so much, and currently have 2 boxers, I found this poem that shows love between humans and dogs, and that's why dogs are so much family members fully.
