If I Had A Dog

My assignment was simple in 7th Grade (1990) - write either an English paper or a poem. I chose the "easy" way out. Little did I know, this was the moment I realized I had some kind of talent for writing. Though, this is really my only "poem" (rhyming words). Hope you enjoy, Emily!

If I Had A Dog
By: Meredith Quintana

If I had a dog,
I’d call his name Fred;
He’d wag his tail,
And I’d pat his head.

I’d take him for walks,
Down the street we’d go.
He’d want to run fast,
But I’d tell him, "No!"

I’d feed and bathe him,
He’d sleep in my bed.
I’d make sure his tummy,
Was always well fed.

All this is a dream;
It’s really not so.
All I can hear,
Is my dad saying, "No!"

Thanks, Ladies. My dad always hated this one; said it made him look like the bad guy. Ha.

Emily, I'm a saver. I have everything that I've written. :)
