Sonnet №86-a Love so Pure

Lucy. 2004–2021

Sonnet №86 — A Love So Pure — pet poem #8

No love so pure has ere left human hearts

as love that takes root deep within our pets.

For nothing canst e’er pull us apart

From those creatures, we shall not forget.

Our pups from childhood still live within;

they dwell, yet be long past these forty years.

You’ll ne’er forget your kitty’s grin

or how your dog wouldst pine to scritch her ears.

Shakespeare doth not wrote of love so pure

that comes ‘tween all good people and their pets.

Unrequited, yet no one seeks a cure;

A rare love, with feelings bold; no regrets.

Our pets, they hold our hearts for evermore;

’til our souls, too, wash up on heaven’s shores.
