Matilda The Wonder Dog by Paul Ray
Children's Story: Matilda The Wonder Dog by Paul Ray
Dreary day spent under covers
With a fever in my bed;
Glancing out my bedroom window,
Pain from laughter hurt my head.
There I saw my neighbor's hound dog
Rolling down the street on skates;
Being pushed and pulled by children,
Which of course a canine hates.
But Matilda was quite gracious
Letting kiddies roll her 'round;
Even with a red cape fastened,
She just rolled without a sound.
Up and down the street she glided
As her cape flapped in the breeze;
I was rolling now from laughter,
Falling down upon my knees.
Then Matilda started howling,
Which came not as a surprise;
She was trying to say, "I've had it."
You could see it in her eyes.
All at once she lost her balance,
Stumbling quick into a ditch;
Skates flew off with cape entangled,
As a boy went to unhitch.
Soon Matilda ran from torment
And the wheels tied to her feet;
She dove quickly in her dog house,
Which to her was a retreat.
After that I felt much better
From the laughter and the ache;
For the Wonder Dog Matilda
Caused my temperature to break.
