Ourselves and Our Dogs

Our senses sing with the signs of new life,
And our bodies are urged into action.
Those who didn't attract us in winter
May have for us a new attraction.

We are not as removed from our animal selves
As our religions want us to pretend to be.
A great source of pleasure on this earth is
Channelling our instincts into productivity.

We all have different ways of showing our delight
Some are busy gardening; some walk on the beach.
Some are simply soaking up the sun and breezes;
Some are opening their hearts as far as they can reach.

How can anyone remain bitter and hardened
When there is so much in our natures to celebrate?
The major difference between ourselves and our dogs
Us that we have the ability to enjoy gratification's wait.
