Doggie By My Mailbox by Balisha
Sitting here this morning.. I'm gazing at the view...
Just outside my window, I'll tell you what is true.
My neighbors walking by, with pooches on a line..
The dogs with noses on the ground.. look for a spot so fine.
When they see my mailbox, they tug and pull and strain..
They look just so darn happy, but to me they are a pain.
I plant each year some lilies.. and pansies too for show..
To make this spot so pretty for people on the go.
The dogs just seem to like this spot.. I'll never know just why..
I watch them from inside and breath a little sigh.
I guess they really need to "go" and I've made their place so pretty.
If they couldn't stop here briefly..it would be a real pity.
I'd miss their antics when they pass...a pulling and tugging so..
It's worth the planting work for me.. to see them put on a show.
After all where could they go on my really pretty street?
I'll have to share my mailbox and keep it not so neat.
