Cheer Is Here

This is written for dVerse where tonight we are writing a quadrille using the word “cheer.”

Cheer Is Here


I grow solemn

to write of cheer

trying to force emotion

and philosophical thoughts.


A cold wet nose interjects

the metronome tail

a wail of gladness

upon my return

as if years I’d been gone

not mere moments.

Clearly my dear,

Cheer is here.

  1. Not quite the reception I get from my cats but I’m looking forward to cold wet noses and metronome tails from my grand-dogs when I visit my daughter at the weekend!

  2. This is a wonderful write Sascha! Dogs are just furry love balls. We have two. Our oldest, Stanley, may be observing his final Christmas? 16-years-old and his health seems to be declining quickly. We will all miss “ole man Stan” when he is gone! ;-(

    1. I believe in never say never. I’ve loved my old dogs. They have taught me a great deal about life. And, yes, I can’t describe the missing them when they’ve gone. Best wishes and hugs to you and Stanley.
