Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – The Poet and Her: The Midnight Hour

Inspired by and written for Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – thank you GC and Sue

With the extreme heat of the last few weeks, Lilydog’s walks have had to be rescheduled – not sure she is overly impressed by that. However, I do think she has enjoyed her late-night walks as she is now raring to go walkies between 11pm and midnight. Does that have something to do with the chicken and sausage treat after – probably. Here goes…

The Poet and Her: The Midnight Hour
Form: Quatern Sonnet

When we’re walking out in the dark
Only the moonlight on the path
Around the park in silver hue
Now the grass is cool on her feet
The park looks different at night
When we’re walking out in the dark
Crossing the bridge stream ripples shine
But the fish can be seen so clear
Lilydog picks up a new scent
Old fox has been looking for scraps
When we’re walking out in the dark
In the cool air of summer nights
A low-flying owl hoots hello
When we’re walking out in the dark

  1. Our dog has had early morning and late evening walks too. Fortunately the temps have dropped here in Yorkshire and we’re enjoying cooler comfortable days.
    Thank you, Jez. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Sue

      Temps are dropping here in Wiltshire too so back to evening walks not night ones. I think Lilydog enjoyed her late nighter though
