Kissed by the Wind

9 September 2023


Kissed by the Wind


My Jolene

is a beauty queen

but

more than that —


She’s kissed

by the wind,

and that’s a fact.


Her mommy is

Ginger Snap;

her daddy is Mikey

He likes it!


And I like it too,

what faith and love

and charity

can do!


She came to me

on the wings

of love

from

the Lord above

and from

Ogden, Utah.


While I cannot

say

exactly why

her fate

has crossed

with mine,


I can attest

to the

very best

of intentions

every time


I see her eyes

look at mine:


to love and protect

this sweetness

in life


to defend her

from ev’ry strife

and to share with

this proud princess


all the adventure

that is the essence

of owning and loving

a beagle.


She’s adorable

and regal

with those softly pleading eyes

that come as no surprise

from a champion companion

who is Windkist.


Her registered name is:


Jolene du Pré

(Jolene Of the Meadow)

Windkist Talking in Your Sleep.


She certainly will keep

me turning the page


to whatever the next phase

of life will bring to us


because

being kissed by the wind

is a never-ending

journey

of love.
