Walking Bailey

Walking Bailey

A Poem by Dara


A sunny day, a gentle breeze


as we pass by the giant oak trees


my lab and I stroll side by side


no need to hurry we take our time.


She sniffs the grass and rolls around


I glance her way then up she bounds.


The silence is golden we hear not a word


and I  hum to myself to a chorus of birds.


These moments with Bailey


 I’ll remember forever.


She’s my constant companion,


a friendship to treasure.

I can't think of anything better than time spent with my dogs. They make everything that much more special. It's one reason we began fostering.
A true poetic treasure !!!

ah yes .. the humidity gets the better of most ... Bella wont come off the porch on such days ;)
And so Bailey gets another poem written about her. Truly, she must be a special dog. Very nice writing, Dara, and please scratch Bailey behind her ear for me.

A great tribute to a family pet. I hope she/he didn't pass away, it sounds like the pet was a good friend to you. I love the imagery too, so clear and crisp. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful poem and have a great day.
