Hesitant First Steps
Staring with awe at the new fallen snow
The dog can’t believe what she sees with her eyes.
What kind of world is capable of this sort of disguise?
Curious to see just what it’s about,
She leans down her head to sniff it with her snout
For this is always the best way to know.
Surprised by the cold, she jerks back her head
Having learned only that from her quick foray down
And now you laugh at your white nosed clown.
She cocks her head but soon forgets you are there
Because something of greater interest has her aware
Of the dangers to you, that’s enough said.
Since you aren’t afraid, she decides to take a step.
With cautious moves, her paw stretches out of the door.
She’s no idea off the treat that is in store.
Her paws touches the ground and is quickly drawn back
As if the snow made with a cold winter attack.
Then she gathers her courage as she starts to prep.
Paw out again, her foot firmly on the ground
And another soon follows as a smile crosses her face.
The next thing you know she has quickened her pace.
Bounding and jumping out in the snow without fear
This is the point where you a snap a picture, right here,
To remember the joy as she first through the snow learned to bound.
