National Poetry Day Message Poem by Heather F Reid

Request from a Guide Dog

.

If we should meet,
please don’t tempt me with treats
or excite me
or jiggle my ears.

.

Don’t invite me to play
or put things in my way,
I’ve been training for this day
for years.

 

Don’t stand firm in my route
and shout ‘ISN’T HE CUTE!’
Don’t encourage your dog to say hi.

.

Though it’s tempting to pat me
you’ll only distract me
so, please, carry on, pass me by.
