A Stray Dog's Dream by Zozo

Dreaming about the soft pillows,
I lick my wounds.
Cool in the summer, 
warm in the winter.
That's how others live.
Trying to live through every day, 
hunting for myself.
That's how I live.

a Hebrew poem

We've been learning about Hebrew poetry (the kind that's written in the Bible). It's not based on rhyme words, but on repeating or rewarding a line, expanding on a thought or stating the opposite.
