Simply beautiful--may favorite line: the mellow peace of coming home.

This is great (and I'm not a big poetry fan)! Thoroughly enjoyed your poem, especially the last line, "waiting for good-bye." Wonderful writing!
makes me almost want to get a dog ... almost...

Being an avid animal lover, I truly enjoyed this clever poem. It made me smile, and the last part...waiting to say "goodbye" made my eyes glisten. That is the worst part...saying goodbye.

Excellent job. God bless~

Beautiful and descriptive. Great word choices and the flow was beautiful. Loved it.

"They simply sigh..."

Beautiful. I've got too much to learn about this sort of poetry to offer an honest critique. And to be honest, I normally find this sort of verse very hard to read; but this was easy and flowed really well. So I'm presuming it is well constructed and follows whatever the rules are.

Great job and thanks for throwing the brick; I might of missed it otherwise.

Jim - another great poem and a well deserved win. Congratulations! This is one of your best.
I wanted to wrap myself up in this poem like a warm blanket. There is a nostalgia to it, a comfort. Quite lovely!

Love it. I feel like curling up with this poem, laying my head on a worn corduroy knee, and resting. Congratulations, Jim - well deserved win on this one. Sigh.
Awww, lovely!
Wow, that is so good, I loved reading it.
