Gleaming, sparkling, clean and new,
Samson stood to attention and admired the view.
Seeing who he wanted so much to impress
He hoped his surprise was worth all the stress:
Delilah smiled from across the lawn
Dispersing thoughts of being forlorn,
The engine settled to a steady thrum
And all his fears were overcome.
Up into the air the two did fly
Waving at all as they passed by
Free as a bird surfing on the breeze
Soaring high above clouds and trees.
‘Delilah, my love, will you agree to wed,
There is only room for you in my head.’
‘Of course, sweet Samson’ she replied with a grin
‘Just tell me how to land this thing!’


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
