The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

My Dog

Furry, panting little chap,
Sniffing round the tree trunk sap,
Rushing from the post and rail,
With his ever wagging tail,
Chasing ball and rugged stick,
Greeting with his soppy lick,
Man's best friend and loving buddy,
Filthy wet and always muddy!
