Quotes Dog poems

February 18th to 24th


Day after day, the whole day through—
Wherever my road inclined—
Four-Feet said, ‘I am coming with you!’
And trotted along behind.


This is from  “Four Feet” (1932)

Master, this is Thy Servant. He is rising eight weeks old.
He is mainly Head and Tummy. His legs are uncontrolled.
But Thou has forgiven his ugliness, and settled him on Thy knee …
Art Thou content with Thy Servant? He is very comfy with Thee.


This is from “His Apologies” (1932)

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.


This is from “The Power of the Dog”  (1909)
