They're by our sides, our dogs,
not only friends,
also sentinels barking, protective,
They purr, our cats, rolled up in sleep,
rub against our legs, mewing so content.
They snort and prance, our horses,
allowing us to be astride them-
despite some flurry winter days
or summer haze.
A valentine for animals-
who put up with us humans
and our guff,
yet, how we cherish our animals-
of fur, of feathers, of scales,
who love us with a love that prevails.
