Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Maggie in the Woods

Maggie in the Woods with Diamonds
(with apologies to the Beatles)

Picture yourself on a path in the forest
With golden-green trees and setting-sun skies.
Somebody woofs; you snap off a picture—
A dog with kaleidoscope eyes.

Maggie in the woods with diamonds, etc.

Last week, when I snapped this picture of Maggie with the setting sun at her back, I had no idea her eyes would turn out so, er, ghostly. It’s as if she doesn’t have eyes at all.

Anybody remember Little Orphan Annie and her dog Sandy? They didn’t have eyes either.
