Rhyme scheme: aa
Easter Resurrection is
Coming soon enough
Focus from rabbits and eggs is tough
Our pets are a part
Of the center of our heart
We love them in a way
That only pet-owners can say.
We talk to them in words
That seem to others quite absurd.
And spoil them with treats,
Adding to their food cheese and meats.
Their smiles make us smile
And we walk with them a mile
In freezing weather and snow
To keep them healthy, you know?
We picture them as family
Part of the kids for you and me –
And know their presence is a treat
Bringing joy to all they meet.
So in this Christmas time of year
I’m sending greeting from over here
To help you know – no need to guess –
.Why we love our pets!
