Joseph Hart: Robin's Poem

Robin's Poem

A soft little doggie
All fluffy and white
Sat by the river
And all through the night
He barked at the water
He barked at the stars
He barked at the shadows
He barked at the cars.
He barked and he barked.
Why this loud little pup
Even barked at the people
His barking woke up.
