ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Spotted Howl

Thrashing through the underbrush,
Leaping over creeks,
Spot has got his sniffy on –
Squirrels are what he seeks!

Posing with a lifted paw,
Sniffing at the breeze,
Then he’s on the run again,
Barking at the trees.

Frantically he dashes ‘round
Howling at his prey…
Doesn’t seem to realize
He scared them all away!

I was watching from the porch.
The chase was spirited
But once an hour had come and gone
I sighed and shook my head.

My dog is quite intelligent
When schmoozing with his master…
But Spot has got a lot to learn
If squirrels are what he’s after.
