Vagabond Dogs


Artwork : 'A Distinguished Member of the Humane Society' by Sir Edwin Landseer


It rained last night too,
Streets drenched, air cool,
Her fur kept me warm,
Tired, wet, but she was calm.

I awoke to her failing beats,
Beautiful she, like a poem by Keats,
I stroked her head,
She never budged.

Thirteen days she stood by,
She still had enough heat last night,
To keep me by,
And maybe change my life.

I am a thief,
Hungry and running,
The only good I ever did?
I fed her once,
A vagabond dog's gift to another!
