Words for Kip

       We walked our woods,
          Cedars stitched with rain,
    Pines edged in mist.

                        You had today, and were content.
         I, still having yesterday,
       wanted tomorrow too.
        We walked our fields.
                                             Arches, steeples, songs and bright windows,
All were grass.

          The pale wind brings,
   And takes away.

These Words for Kip are for my beloved dog, Kip, whose life ended yesterday. Good-bye, dear companion, your today was too short.


  1. So sorry to hear about Kip. Our pets certainly bring joy to our lives.

    1. Thank you, Jenny. You are so right. Kip was my faithful companion, never more than a few feet from my side, for almost 14 years. Not long enough!

  2. So sorry to hear the sad news about your lovely dog, they certainly become members of the family and are such wonderful companions.

    1. Thank you, Pauline. You are right, they become family members. And family members that never argue and always want to do what you want to do... I'll miss him very much.
