A Girl and Her Dog


 This is a photo of my great-niece, Reagan Blanche, and her dog, Henry.

A Girl and Her Dog

When life gets hard,
Reagan goes outside
and lopes across the yard
playing catch ball with her dog.

She leaves behind tons
of math and reading assignments,
homework can wait,
but the day will soon end.

Henry, the husky, and Reagan
sing a merry little tune,
free as the rose petals
twirling, twisting, on a breeze.

How good to be alive!
They savor this splendid spring,
a girl and her dog playing:
their blue eyes sparkle!
               --Brenda Kay Ledford

I hope my blogger friends are having a very happy spring!
