tomorrows once tumbled
about me excitedly
puppies of time bounding
into my lap all at once
scrabbling tender pawed
crowding and licking my face
with unbridled affection
but now they have dwindled
aged into languor preferring
to yawn and lie stretched
on the rug at my feet
they still love me but quietly
knowing like only old dogs
know of truth that they few
are the last of the breed
