Monday Memories: Loving Duo

This poem was published in December, 2018.  The two dogs were part of a family for many years, and their passing just weeks apart made for a  difficult time to deal with.  I was blessed to know this loving duo, and this poem was written as a tribute to them.

Scooter and Sydney become life-long best friends

A collie and a beagle loving each other to the end

 

Scooter is a handsome male, steady as he goes

Sydney is a beautiful female, smiling with a glow

 

Scooter stands steady and reliable as anyone can see

Sydney fills time with energy and spirit like a busy bee

 

Scooter enjoys taking long naps by a window in the sun

Sydney would rather discover a backyard path for fun

 

Scooter shows off a well-mannered and warm deposition

Sydney’s sneaky behavior may put her in a bad position

 

Scooter savors his food ever so slowly—never in a hurry!

Sydney devours hers ever so quickly—always in a flurry!

 

Scooter never becomes too excited on any given day

Sydney feels hyper and animated with plenty of play

 

Scooter manages to keep his life always quiet and neat

Sydney steals Scooter’s food—being so sly and sweet!

 

Both dogs make each other’s life first-class and real

Each leaves many memories filled with extra appeal

 

 

 

My Lovely Lady

Each morning, she waits with calmness

Her attitude reflects poise and kindness

 

She cherishes conversation, sitting at my knee

Listening attentively, she enjoys being with me

 

Her appearance shows off beauty and her shape

Inviting me to meet her for another special date

 

She has become an independent thinker

Dreaming of new adventures, she tinkers

 

She doesn’t mind others taking a mid-day nap

Sleeping for a few winks, she’s out in a snap

 

She welcomes the weather on sunny days

Frowning when rain clouds gather to stay

 

She looks forward to sweet morning walks

Experiencing nature, she seldom ever talks

 

Sometimes at dusk, she lets out a fright

Watching out a window, deer in her sight

 

Allow me to introduce this loyal and lovely lady

She’s been a perfect friend, her name is Sadie

Sadie is an English Lab, and she is a dear friend to her family.  Sometimes, I am invited to help watch her when family is away.  As you can see, she loves her nap time.

Here is a link to the first poem featuring Sadie.  It was published back in November.
