Trails End



Miss Millie MacNeil
October 1995 - October 2007


We ran on beaches
Tide littered - from coast to coast


Learned to breach the waves
Swimming out to bobbing ducks


Discovered the trail
In a snowstorm thick as fog.


Explored the prairies
Immersed in a sea of grass


And when our trail branched
You alone found the way home.
(I wrote this poem for a tribute to my recently departed dog Miss MacNeil)
