He took me for a walk today.
We went to Uncle Tree’s to play.
He held my paw along the way,
so I could move, and swing, and sway.
I love the boy, and he loves me!
He hugs his teddy tenderly.
On our way home, I chanced to see
a leprechaun out running free.
I’d heard about such things before
in fairy tales and old folk’s lore,
but never ever had I seen
a little man dressed all in green.
He waited ’till we’d gone on past
to run across the road real fast.
He quickly vanished in the trees,
where rainbows dwell and life’s a breeze.
