(Based on: Genesis 2:19)

Animals are a precious gift
(Specialty of God's Love)
Created just before man-
Sweet fashioned from above!
Adam got to name them
And call them what he pleased
(That must have been a lot of fun,
And something done with ease.)
We think that we can "train" them,
But actually THEY train us...
And when they crave attention,
With them it is a MUST!
If they do not get it-
That's when they "entertain"
And melt our hearts in motion,
As we just give in - and PLAY!
