Hound


It barks all night
For every footstep
It hears at my doorstep
It vigils all night
So I could be safe inside

Even as I detest her as a pet
She sees me as her best
Sometimes I ask myself
How I deserve this treatment
I throw bones her way
She feeds on my leftovers
She sleeps in the cold door way
Still, she never turns her back away

If only I knew
My hound would be this faithful
I would have built her a castle
And opened up my heart to her feelingly

You should be the hound
And she be you

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
