Thankful Thursday with Xena (again)

Lucy: I’m so thankful for the sunshine and a yard to lay in it. I’m told my furs glow, and that’s why my official Hebrew name is Ora when I got Barkmitzvahed.

Riley: I’m thankful for the great food I get. I never was much interested in eating, but now I’m right there with the peanut gallery telling Mom Amy it’s supper time…even when it isn’t!

Chia: I’m thankful that once in a while I get to slip out and run like The Flash through the neighborhood. I run and run and run and run and then I come home. Mom says that’s not a good thankful, but hey, I’m just bein’ honest here.

Xena: I’m really thankful that Mommy has let me host our thankful Thursdays as well as create the poetry all of May. And I’ve gotten to do all the posts all week! I think she feels guilty replacing me with Lucy as the church dog. First a big thanks to Brian for hosting Brian’s Thankful Thursday! And I am thankful to  Angel Sammy for the fun picture this week, too.  Here’s the picture and my poem.

I Came for the Ball by Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess

I came for the ball
But there’s no ball at all.
Nothing that bounces
Or even announces
That no balls are here
I really do fear.

A dance is a ball?
Oh, no, not for all!
I have no dance partner
To Freestyle real proper
He can’t be too tall
Cause I am so small.

But if there’s no ball
And I can’t dance at all
I’m goin’ home!

  3. Those were all good thankfuls gang but I’m not sure your Mom is thankful about the running through the neighborhood thing. That was a fun poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  6. That is a sweet poem, Xena…we think maybe you should have taken *your* ball…

    Good thankfuls, too, all of you…Our MJF used to run off like you do, Chia, but he would have stayed away…he ran till he had to flop down for a rest, and that is when we could snatch him and put his leash on…
