Your Maltese
Tiny black nose
And shoe button eyes
A baby-doll face
 of diminuitive size
Long flowing white angel hair
Down to the ground
But she'll never trip on it,
 dancing around

With elfin-like charm
And a humor that's true
A penchant for knowing
Your thoughts and your mood
An inspired performance
Seeks out your smile
But she'll never compromise
Her grace and style

Undaunted by size
In a big giant world
She'll step out to protect you
With brave "woofs" unfurled
Most content on your pillow
Heart set to please
And she'll never let you down
She's Your Maltese
