Cardigan Plaisir

Ode aux Corgis par Maggi Payne, Florida

 

Corgis are like M&Ms;

they come in several colors.

Some are high-fallutin' Brits,

and some are US fellers.

 

Some dash around the cows all day

and herd them home at night,

While others lie upon the couch

and practice sleeping tight.

 

Some yearn to be the Best in Show

and prance around the ring,

But others covet High in Trial

Agility's their thing.

 

Some like to vie in Rally-O

and practice down and sit,

But others yearn for Tally-Ho

and chase a fox or kit.

 

A few of them work very hard as service dogs on duty,

While others toil in Hollywood,

renowned for canine beauty.

 

Some have flowing pantaloons

and wear a coat that's fluffy.

Others sport a GI cut

and look a tad bit scruffy.

 

But brindle, tri, or red and white, they all have learned the ploy

Of capturing our minds and hearts

and giving us GREAT JOY!
