Tail Wag: A Poem

Just because I'm a dog doesn't mean I'm unable to dabble in poetry from time to time. I decided to get up early before my morning potty break to write this poem about the wagging of my tail. Enjoy!

It sways gracefully from side to side
Like a waving flag
But is that movement a banner rippling?
No, it's my tail wag!

My tail wags all day
Left to right
It wags at morning
Wags at night!

It doesn't just go back and forth
It spins in a circle too
If you had my whip-like tail
You'd be wagging too!


  1. Love your rhyme. You definitely know the intricacy of tail wagging.

  8. Good Poem. If I had a tail poem it would be a haiku

    My tail is long
    And it sweeps from side to side
    Mom’s coffee goes crash
