Thank You, Will, For #130
My Hennessy has eyes that shine so bright
Yet one is slightly dimmed by injury;
Her soft brown ears are velvet, left and right
Her nose a chilly point of inquiry.
In other dogs of film and famous note
Their tricks and brilliance leave us all aghast;
My Henny stays, and sits, and preens her coat
But never will amaze or make us gasp.
I love to sleep beside her, but she’ll stay
Until some other urgency distracts;
Her loyalty unquestioned never strays,
Betimes she wanders off the beaten track.
Despite our imperfections, faith compels
A song of love her heart and mind propel.
