THE VISITOR

PHOTO FROM PIXABAY

Well there's a goat in my yard,
How can this be?
I'd expect a dog, a frog,
A small puppy.
He just stood and stared above,
In such dismay.
To pass for grass, alas! He
Passed the wrong way.
Can I flee to the neighbors?
So scared you see...
Well there's a goat in my yard.
Someone help me!

LOST PUPPY

HAVE YOU SEEN MY PUPPY?
SHE'S MISSING HERE TONIGHT.
GUESS THE ROAR OF THUNDER,
GAVE HER A JOLTED FRIGHT!
HAVE YOU SEEN MY PUPPY?
HER FUR IS WHITE AS SNOW.
WITH BLACK DOTS LIKE COOKIES,
A TIP THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.

HAVE YOU SEEN MY PUPPY?
SHE'S SMART AND CAN DO TRICKS.
JUMPS AND CAN ROLL OVER,
AND EVEN FETCH FOR STICKS.

ALAS! FOUND MY PUPPY!
SHE CAME BACK HOME TODAY.
DRENCHED IN THE FILTHY DIRT,
BUT GLAD SHE'S HERE TO STAY.
