Puppy Love

How envious I am of my dog Sprawling like a human Across my couch, Darting like an arrow Straight into the house Nearly knocking me down as He races past me, Looking at me innocently with His tongue lolling Off to the side. He groans…

Iron Orion

  Heavens formed of brass Earth of iron below As his belts stars do pass The words which now follow:   Immortal gods centered in the cavity Powers formed and some less known For their shield of invincibility As words that have prolonged their lives…
