Woolie's to the Rescue
Woolie the Sheep Poem Seven
It's a lovely day, dry and so sunny,
Woolie is out playing, barker is being funny.
They run down hill, then through the gate,
So happy to be, playing with her mate.
Barker tells a joke, Woolie laughs so loud,
As friends do go, of barker she's proud.
Barker does go first, jumps over the wall,
Oh no big drop, barker did then fall.
Cries out to woolie, lands in a lump,
Skids to a halt, she does not jump,
Barker tries to stand, but it hurts too bad,
Woolie please get help, please find your dad.
Home was so far, from this place here,
Woolie heart does go, running fast with fear.
Runs through the meadow, jumps the small stream,
Get to her house, come quick she screams.
Her dad did hurry, help he did call,
Then grabbed some things, because barker did fall.
He talks to woolie, to let her know,
Barker will be fine, but they must go.
Daddy rushes with her, back over the stream,
Through the green meadow, where woolie had been.
Arrives at the wall, Barker was so still,
Could not get up, he looked quite ill.
I've called for help, they're on their way,
Don't try to move, just continue to lay.
Woolie is holding back, she wants to cry,
But must be strong, and that's no lie.
The vet does arrive, checks barkers legs well,
I think it's broken, but hard to tell.
Will soon be fixed, you will be alright,
Hear your brave woolie, you did what's right.
Barker was now safe, Daddy took Woolie home,
The vet will call, later on the phone.
But you were brave, run all that way,
So barker was safe, so proud this day.
Later that same day, knock at the door,
There was poor Barker, Woolie looked with awe.
It was just sprained, not broken at all,
Lucky Woolie was there, when I did fall.
Barker the sheep dog, did soon then recover,
Did run and jump, just like any other.
The lesson was learned, so good to know,
Look before you leap, look where you go.
