friend, friendship, pets,
by Lei Strauss |
Truly loved him ever since he was young
That brown Collie is my sweet pet of mine
Lovely to look at when he shows his tongue
Don’t let him mad if he shows his rare fang.
Running nowhere in an old street line
He is there during my difficult times.
Doesn't talk but I feel his one great love
Our bond is as strong as these sweet chimes
Sweet as those most unforgettable limes,
My brown Collie is a gift from above!

Warmth shared inside the dog house
As red cheeked sisters play
Snug and safe from the snowy ground
Mischief dances like rays_
Protected from the wind and snow
Adults won't find them there
As they giggle away the hour
Secure without a care
Scarves, coats, and a Collie puppy
Heat within the shelter
A warmth based upon human love
Not on snowy weather

My very first girlfriend
Her name was Debbie Collie
I walked her back and forth to school
I wrote her a poem because she asked me to
It went like this:
I do not know what a poem is but I do know what I want, I want a new bike and a new basketball, a bunny rabbit but what I want most of all is just to be your friend.
After she read it she kissed me on the cheek we were friends until she moved away but I often think about her because she was, my very first love.
