Remembering Jazz: A poem by Jeanie Axton

Remembering Jazz (Our Golden Cocker Spaniel 2005-2017)

The puppy in our son’s lap
Golden soft coat
Wagging tail
Bright eyes

Dog obedience lessons
Walks round the block
Runs in the pines
Swims in the pool

Escaping out of the gate
Tail wagging when returning home
Climbing through kid’s windows
Snoozing in her favourite chair

Doggy Christmas stockings
Budget hair clips
A Pinterest Album
Snapchats and Selfies

An old dog sleeping at the gate
Watery eyes
A slow walk
A golden ager

The Space in our yard
Now empty and silent
The Space in our heart
Full of memories

Remembering …….
