WaitingKoko  

We dogs spend most of our day waiting:

  • Waiting for food
  • Waiting for a walk
  • Waiting for our mum or dad
  • To come home from work

We are the best waiters in the world.

Here is a little poem I wrote about waiting:

WAITING  by KoKo 2012

       Mum’s left me tied up

To a bicycle rack

Saying “Just wait, little mate,

I will soon be back”

So I lie down and relax

with my head on my paws,

Feeling dizzy with how busy

Mum is with her chores

 My eyes peer into the distance

Between lots of feet and legs

When I think it’s mum I start to dance

When I see it’s not her I start to beg

 

Sighing and groaning I slump back

to my half-asleep state

Dreaming of food or playing

With my best mate

 

Then my body tenses, my ears spring upright

my little face glows like the sun

My tail waves madly left and right

And my eyes glow with delight

The joy of waiting

is in meeting again

It is worth all the time

The patience and pain

                                                                                Waiting feet
