Bedtime Snack

Hands up if you’re a creature of habit! I know I am, and so is my beloved dog. To celebrate the comfort of routine, this month’s poem is all about my dog’s favorite snack of the day . . . her bedtime snack!

Bedtime Snack

By Katie Gilstrap

With pillow fluffed
and blanket fetched,
she lies in wait

with neck outstretched.

Her eyes are wide,
her jaw is set.
Her ears are cocked,

her lips are wet.

And even though
she’s snug in bed,
this hound has yet

to rest her head

for when it’s time
to hit the sack,
she knows she’ll get

a bedtime snack!
