A Childrens Poem Tribute

Yellow Dog

This poem is dedicated to my Grandmother. She was always telling stories and poems. I have no way of knowing if this poem is of her creation or one from her childhood, but I hold in my hand an old raggedy, yellow piece of paper with her handwriting which she wrote to me a very long time ago.

So with honor - To Grammy:

I’ve got a yellow dog working hard,

Stealing chickens from my neighbor’s yard.

Every day I know he’ll bring something for my dinner.

So I never do a thing.

My little yellow dog is as skinny as a rail.

He’s got fleas all over his tail.

And every time his tail goes flop,

The fleas on the bottom go over the top!
