A Lonely Night

No dog
To be with
In evenings on a
Very cold winter night;
All is quiet
As I
the flakes
Which fall outside
Of my condo window.


Night Run On Cold Night

Pup with booties
Runs back and forth
In snow so deeps
Paws not frozen
This cold winter night.

Miss Going Out In Winter With Dog

My companion,
I wish you were here
To see snow falling out there.
Your favorite time of year
For your coat was made for it.
I would take you out
You would eat snow
Enjoying a fresh treat;
Then run rocket dog
Up and down and around
On large lawn across the street.
Oh, how I will miss our winter together.
You and me outside
Whether blizzard, ice or cold
We would waddle through snow together.

Dearest Winter

Winter, I loath to see you continue bringing forth your snow.
I am tired of the cold and endless bleak days.
You have made life dark and sluggish.
I can’t seem to work through your season.
Your snowflakes are beautiful, but to drive when it’s blizzard;
Causes me not to want to step outdoors.
Snowy landscape of course is nice but only for a few days I will admire.
Could you try not to make it so cold (as in negative ten degrees)?
I am fine with fifteen degrees but less it can not be;
For who wants to be out in that kind weather
But, I must because I have dog.
Could you think on it for next year please?
I am glad you did make Christmas Eve have some snow.
For it has always been special when it happens.
I am done with your cold, freezing and bleak days.
Can please allow Spring to come forth now?

I Tried To Bade Him Goodnight

I tried to bade him goodnight
But, he begged to remain
On this cold winter night

For outside was deep in snow-white
I was done to entertain;
I tried to bade him goodnight

Oh, no he would not take flight
Continued to talk, he sounded insane
On this cold winter night

I mulled over my plight
What to do; he was a pain
I tried to bade him goodnight

He continued his rappture talking in spite
Of my quietness for which I was drain
On this cold winter night

Hours had finally fallen to twilight
Our talk had finally wane
I tried to bade him goodnight
On this cold winter night
