Canis Major Poem by Robert Frost

Canis Major

Rating: 2.6


The great Overdog
That heavenly beast
With a star in one eye
Gives a leap in the east.
He dances upright
All the way to the west
And never once drops
On his forefeet to rest.
I'm a poor underdog,
But to-night I will bark
With the great Overdog
That romps through the dark.

I love the poem, but whoever did the narration of the poem was the worst I have ever heard. It was so mechanical, it was robotic! Please find some human to inject some feeling into the words they are saying.
