A Small Dog’s Prayer
By Susan Marie Molloy

I lay here in the new-turned soil;
Its coolness brings me big happy joy.
I am grateful to Papa, he did toil;
These benefits I so enjoy.

I slowly close my dark brown eyes;
The sun and its rays are oh! so bright.
I turn my nose, up towards the skies;
The air! The scents! All do excite!

I watch Mama ever so much;
She always makes such good-tasting things.
I sit and wait for her soft touch;
I don’t pull on her apron strings!

I have such tiny, little legs;
My tail is long, a feathery touch.
My mood is like a powder keg,
When Toby tries to ride the clutch.

Thank you, God, for all that I have;
My family is good, I love them so.
To be an orphan was no salve;
To give love all is what I owe.

This short poem is in my chapbook, “Puppy Love: A Praise of Dogs in Poetry and Illustrations” and is now available for FREE February 22-24, 2018 on Amazon Kindle. Click HERE to pick up your free copy.

And, yes, the illustration here is one of my dogs, Trixie.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
