simple verse from a simple man

   Dog's Eye View

He loves to take 
A country ride, 
 Shotgun in the truck; 
Takin' in
 The country sights,  
Where creatures run amok. 

He's caught a glimpse 
And sensed the scents, 
 Of bovine on display; 
A herd of cows 
Are gathered 'round 
 A feeder full of hay. 

I stop awhile 
To watch him watch, 
 Reflecting on the scene, 
Beneath a living 
Sky of blue, 
Just what it all could mean. 

I wonder if 
He thinks the thoughts 
 That you or I would think; 
If somehow 
Every living beast 
 Shares some common link.
