Puddles in the Rain

Dogs and cats

are the subjects

of many poems

And so are trees and flowers and flames

And children leaping puddles in the rain

But dogs and cats

preserve the safety of their secrets to the end

Leaving poetry to know

They harbor ways unknown

yet deeper than the song

of any poem
