Polly is my fold up Guide Dog 

Hello everyone, this is Saturdays poem, as you know i am very grateful to have Polly my Guide Dog, though each day it is often difficult to go anywhere without any attention, which whilst it is lovely, though, sometimes, just sometimes it would be nice to be a little bit annonomous, as was once when i could see and did not need a Guide Dog!
Polly is my fold up Guide Dog!
Polly is my fold up Guide Dog

i take her everywhere with me

she fits in nicely wherever i sit

and doesnt take up much room, not a bit

under the table in a corner small

she is no trouble to me at all!
The other day

we went for a lovely Afternoon tea

My faithful friend

and me

And she doesn’t really drive me round the bend!

As so much love to her people send!

She gets so much attention

Goodness me!

As lovely so is she 

I just want a cuppa tea!

And not deal with all the fuss that’s abound

She really is such a social hound! 
But a sausage she was given

She thought that that was heaven!

As we sipped upon our tea 

A lovely scone and jam for me

Cakes iced and sandwiches small

It was the most lovely afternoon of all!

With friends from Chatt Inn

All merry laughing and having fun

At the lovely Attic Cafe 

Where beautiful staff

Made us so welcome!
But Guide Dogs are very special you understand 

so our life without vision is not so bland

to us blindies they bring much luck

Even though they still roll in muck!

On the grass and sand

licking every sticky hand

And pinching biscuits 

When your not looking

And all the crumbs 

Whilst you are cooking 

And bark at cats

And sniff their way 

And really enjoy their doggy day!
The Guide Dog discipline is installed 

In them from a puppy small

Which makes them well behaved 

And no trouble to us at all!

when she is not being a “real” dog 

a well trained Guide, so you are all agog!

but she loves having fun with you and also me!

and is a true treasure you have to agree

Now that it is difficult for me to see far

I wouldn’t be without my little star

She is a super duper Guide Doggy that is it

And no other profession for her would fit!

so three cheers for Polly doodle guide dog girl today!

is what i want you all to say!

bye bye!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
