The Black Dog


A black mind it will mourn
When man's at his weakest
The long hour before dawn
When bad men are meekest

In the deep black of night
When the lights have gone out
When no wrong can seem right
The black dog festers doubt

When the devil walks tall
Angels dance to his tune
Consumed in the black hall
By the light of the moon

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
