Alternate Author Name(s): Shearer, Harold H., Mrs.
Subject(s): Animals; Dogs; Fire


Oh, child, with what a will
You keep from being still!
How bonelessly you bend,
How tensely reascend --
Five fingers stretch, five fingers close,
One hand a starfish, one a rose.

My head is in a whirl
To see each antic curl
On yours point up and prance
An individual dance --
Wistful, I watch and never tire,
Still as a dog before a fire!
