For Every Baby

For Every Baby

and especially Tessie and Nonny who happen to be puppies

If it were not for you
I’d do the things I’m supposed to do
Like tidying my clothes, my shoes, my desk
My pots and pans and all the rest
And every other thing I possess.
Instead of which we play and cuddle
And snuzzle and nuzzle
And I jump about and pretend I’m a bear
And squeak like a bird.
It’s quite absurd.
I can’t resist this puppy charm
So now another hour has gone.
