Swish, swish, swish, her tail sweeps the air,
Shining eyes, she crouches there.
Arcing high, the ball flies up,
Leaping now, my flying pup.
She takes the ball, prances ‘round,
Twinkle toes, not earthbound.
Come here, girl! but, oh, not she,
Away, away, chase after me!
Faster, farther, prancing still,
She smiles at me, such a pill.
Lets me near, then lies down,
I come near, she’s gone, confound!
Coy now, she comes to me,
Eyes ablaze, fun to see.
She drops the ball, I pick it up,
Adrip, adrip, oh yuck!
Shining eyes, she crouches there,
Swish, swish, swish, her tail sweeps the air.
