Flush Or Faunus

Rating: 4.8
You see this dog. It was but yesterday
I mused, forgetful of his presence here,
Till thought on thought drew downward tear on tear;
When from the pillow, where wet-cheeked I lay,
A head as hairy as Faunus, thrust its way
Right sudden against my face,—two golden-clear
Large eyes astonished mine,—a drooping ear
Did flap me on either cheek, to dry the spray!
I started first, as some Arcadian
Amazed by goatly god in twilight grove:
But as my bearded vision closelier ran
My tears off, I knew Flush, and rose above
Surprise and sadness; thanking the true Pan,
Who, by low creatures, leads to heights of love.

This beautiful poem for the transfiguration of the soul belonging to a dear animal emphasizes the purity and the love feeling existent in the absence of consciousness and necessary for the complex process of human asceticism

Forgetful of his presence here is mused with great enthusiasm and this poem motivates readers with great care and dignity. Surprise and sadness was known in flush. Low creature still leads to height of love and this poem is very brilliantly penned. An excellent sharing is done.10

Surprise and sadness; thanking the true Pan, Who, by low creatures, leads to heights of love. Low creatures may sometimes turn to have tunbeleivablly oo much love for the owner.
