Stray dog

Post by burdick » Fri May 04, 2012 3:49 am

A vagabond dog and a learned man
Shared a simple plot of land separately.
The dog (Lady) lived outside in this plan
And the man lived inside a warm cabin.

A bony black stray from disunity,
With no reason, full of joy and energy.
She met him at each opportunity,
Tongue out, tail wagging, all one movement.


Books had dried him to indifference,
Indifference failed to even affect her!
A strange unmatched pair, so much different.
In trusting, loving, she was living!
