Howling Song

Howling Song

I' m outside playing flute
this morning, and the robin
who has been coming over
to sing with me
balanced on the fence.

We both turned
at the same time,
to the fenced dog
across the street
who was howling
along with the flute!

We caught the dog
He felt our looks on him
and then looked "sheepish"--
