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

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
