Saul Vydas: Visiting the local animal shelter

 

 

A row of cages along a wall 

 

Above ground coffins for them all. 

 

Through bars their paws reach empty air: 

 

Their eagerness reflects despair 

 

For you to like them, take them home 

 

Where they would have whole house to roam. 

 

Or else reach fragment of their past 

 

And feel again the love at last 

 

But few find welcome as a guest 

 

To many it''s eternal rest.
