Gadabout

Moving like the ocean upon the sand,
water lifting, waves, which then heavily land —
The cocker spaniel’s a glad gadabout.
Can a dog be considered roustabout?
Honest laborer rooted in the earth…
Living isn’t worthwhile without some mirth.
When an animal loves you, they’ll work for you;
a simple laborer who needs love too.
His paw on my leg, the cat fell asleep.
It is a trust that’s earned, worked for, so deep.
