Elegy for Roxanne



You came to us

pup bones and fur, bouncing

Spent your days

licking, cuddling, pouncing

Sleeping next to the hearth

lost in dreams, dancing

Autumn time hunt

in tall grass fields, prancing

You left us

white of face, sighing

we bereft, crying

Your place with us

is memory and time

sacred soul, my rhyme.
