With apologies to Robert Frost

We’ve had a string of fine sunny days, and I feel compelled to commit doggerel.

The dogs have roused me from my dreams
Of deep blue Bay and frozen streams
Of giant muskies in Torch Lake
Beneath the ice that groans and gleams

Miss Sadie gives the leash a shake
“We need to go! Make no mistake!”
I trudge behind them, half asleep
For we have got a walk to take

The snow is lovely, bright and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I wake
And miles to go before I wake
