A Dog And His Bone


A dog is a dog whatever its color.
A dog is a lion when at home.
A dog is wiser than a woman,
and does not bark at its master alone.

A dog will not snarl at you
if you reward it with a bone,
but a dog with a bone knows no friend,
and will always utter a repetitive groan.

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,
