TO WALK WITH YOU

The splendor of walking a dog

Into the brierly hills

Where pastured sheep

Hungrily chew the cud

 

Rising their tiny heads

Saying “Good morrow!”

The dog chases

“It will be when I have you!” it replies

 

You put one foot in front of your heavy staff

The other following without a breath

Then I dream i too am up there

Looking down high above the Earth

 

By your side breathless

I would be on top of the world

Once more from the height of a dream I fall

Deep down into  slumberland again

 

Alas I am still at the bottom of that hill

The dog has chased the sheep away

I glance once more to the heavens

And wake  alone!
