I walked outside,Saw the dog; black and fuzzy
like Midnight once was.
The canine softly murmured underneath his breath,
as though he knew
something I did not.
I smiled as I walked down the driveway,
and said g’day to the companion basking
in morning sunshine.
A brief moment of sunshine was soon covered by clouds;
The clouds brought rain with them.
By the time I reached
the rain told me it was too cold outside.
Hail. Hail. Hail.
