Children's Poems
by Margo Fallis
Patty’s Little Puppy

Patty had a puppy; it was white with big brown spots.

They weren’t shaped like circles, or tiny polka dots.

He had patches on his tail and some upon his ears.

He would have them all his life; Patty hoped for many years.

Patty named her puppy, Joe, because she liked that name.

All her friends were calling their pets names the very same.

Joe barked when he saw a cat run down the street,

And tried his hardest to catch it, but alas, he had small feet.

He couldn’t reach the butterflies that fluttered near the flowers,

Even though he tried and tried and tried for many hours.

Joe couldn’t even chase the squirrel up a tree.

Patty laughed each time he tried. It was a sight to see.

Joe couldn’t do many things, but there was one thing he did best.

He cuddled at night with Patty, when they both needed a rest.

She’d scratch his ears; he’d wag his tail; they were the best of friends.

He’d grow up soon enough, she knew, for now, this poem ends.
