Shadow Of A Black Dog - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

'I have walked across the shadow of a black dog.
Alas! What would happen to me? ' saying it,
he started crying loudly.

I asked, 'What is the problem you face? '
He said, 'I may cost my life for it.'

Listening to his cry,
the black dog itself came back.
The man said to him, 'O dog,
I have crossed your shadow today.
What would happen to me? '

The dog replied, weeping, 'Brother,
sorry, I have no knowledge of it.'
