Poetry: Run With The Dogs

Run With The Dogs Run with the dogs, Through thick carpets of burnished gold leaves, In charged air, with frost crackling at each footfall, As sunrise shows welcome in pink. Run with them, they beckon you. They teach you to see, to be with joy, reveling, Howling to the wind and sky with abandon, Every second savored to the limit. They live their truth, Happily, generously, with love unconditional, Trotting down worn Adirondack trails through ribboned creeks, To music only they hear. How pure are they, Brothers of wolves, with hearts tethered to man, Adoring, protecting, sharing precious primal freedom >>More
