Molly Wanted a Dog

Molly wanted a dog, but she couldn’t find one. She searched everywhere. She looked in the park, but there were no dogs. She looked in the forest, but there were no dogs. She looked in the school, but there were no dogs.

Molly wanted a dog, but she couldn’t find one. She searched everywhere. She looked in a raindrop, but there were no dogs. She looked in a watermelon seed, but there were no dogs. She looked in the sound of a whistle, but there were no dogs.

Molly wanted a dog, but she couldn’t find one. She told a walrus to open it’s mouth and she looked inside, but there were no dogs. She looked back in time to when the earth was glowing red hot like a match head, but there were no dogs. She looked inside her own heart, and Lo!

There was a dog

It sat very still

It wanted to be pet

So Molly took the dog from her heart. And together they were very happy.50x50
