The thing that makes me happy is 'the sweetest thing'

The Sweetest Thing

by Toni Newell

The sweetest thing,
I've ever known,
Is not wrapped in paper,
But chews a bone.

It doesn't rot teeth,
But likes to lick,
Loves to play,
With balls and stick.

Not brightly colored,
Nor sticky or gooey,
It's soft and cuddly,
Not hard or chewy.

It gives me pleasure,
All of the time,
Not just a mouthful,
A moment sublime.

It is a friend,
In many ways,
Not just a binge,
On upset days.

The sweetest thing,
Is not chocolate log,
But I think we all know,
It is my humble dog.
