A potbellied dog

I’m in the mood to walk in the hills
In the hills and the dales
with a potbellied dog

To struggle up hills
And skitter down dales
And be put on my toes
By a short-legged dog

I’m in the mood
To be in the mood
And now all I need
Is a suitable dog

A dog with a yen
To struggle up hills
With a man with a yen
For a potbellied dog

bench below the spread boughs of a ginkgo blob tree

  1. Great poem David and such a lovely tree in your photo! Is it a Gingko? And are those Golden Rod gone-to-seed in the foreground?
