A DOG’S LULLABY


Motherless,
Loveless
Babe in the street waste bin,
Just out of the womb,
Blood red!
Puking out the gall
Of perennial human agony,
Screaming out
All the woes of humanity!
Unsung lullabies
And unpoured bosoms;
Drained out hearts!
Unwelcome child.
Motherless,
Loveless
Kid of the waste bin!

Comes a mother dog
Seeking her lost pup!
While she was asleep
By the wayside, by the street,
Stolen!

The waste babe whines,
And the mother dog listens…
She licks,
She hums,
She lulls…
Her spirit sings…
(We call it growl,
Ignorantly!
We, who have lost,
The sense of language
Of the universe!)

    Motherless,

    Babe in the street waste bin,

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
