Such A Wonder
They’re such a wonder!
They never eat their fellow creatures,
or trample them under hoof.
They don’t require the speedy dispatch
of rain forest acres
to meet their culinary needs.
Those in my garden don’t eat the plants
and happily allow me to garland them
with flowers fresh each morning
and allow the myriad of insects
to alight and feed on them
without so much as a flick of the tail
or a toss of the head.
Such a wonder.
They’ll come for a walk with no need
as they don’t chase the sheep
or greet passers by with a growl
or take a hefty bite from an ankle
or shit on the street or path.
Truly a wonder
And they’ll inhabit your dreams with smiles.
