A poem from my wife!

This was inspired by my beautiful guide dog Lenny who has been so happy lately in the autumn gales. They blow the leaves around in the park and Lenny thinks it is all for him. He runs around in all directions chasing first one then another, leaping upon them and pinning them to the ground. Such absolute joy!

“Twas brillig, and the crispy leaves Did gyre and gimble in the wind: All naked were the chestnut trees, And the oak leaves were unpinned.

"Beware theLenny dog ,O leafsies! The jaws that grin , the claws that scratch! Beware theGuideing hound , which seizes, All the skittery leaves to catch.”

Long time the foliar foe he sought, Upon his paws he did abound: Muchly leaping, snuffle and snort, by the tum tum tree He chased them down.

And as in canine thought he stood, On a roar of wind the   leafsies came, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled out his puppy name!

Prantish and twisty! Skirmish and bounce.
The Lennydog raised his hackles, And with one final vanquishing pounce    Secured the leafy battle.

"And has thou slain the leafy hordes? Come to my side , my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' Such wondroustimes , such blissful joy!”

`Twas brillig, and the crispy leaves   Did gyre and gimble in the wind: All naked were the chestnut trees,   And the oak leaves were unpinned.

With abdject apologies to Lewis Carroll and all who love the Jabberwocky.
