A Poem by Towanda the Dude

A hilarious dog

A big white dog chews on his bone
He looks up at me with a grin on his face
You can tell he's in his home
And that he knows he's in the right place
I get up and go to the door
He gets up too and looks at me funny
As I reach for the handle, he jumps 'round the floor
I let him outside, and he zooms past me agilely
He runs all the way from the lawn to the road
And then along the orchard fence slaloming trees
He comes bounding back to our sleepy abode
Then sneezes and jumps backwards absurdly
Thus begins the quest for a ball
He puts his head down taking in scents
He finds it and gets in an army crawl
He snaps his jaws shut and tears off hellbent
On having such fun so he lets out a bellow
That makes me stare at my handsome dog Milo.

Towanda the Dude
I'm just starting out writing various things, so please don't be too harsh, but I welcome any criticism you may have that you think could help me write better poems in the future. What I was trying to do here was create a mood that anyone who ever had a dog can relate to.

I'm just a kid, starting out by writing his first book, and am nowhere near the skill level of the seasoned professionals that I'm sure make up a lot of this site. I write (or "hope to write") books. .. more..
