unconditional love?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

When his human died, Shep, a mixed collie dog in Fort Benton, Montana, , followed the wooden coffin to the train station. When the train left the station, he could not after a while keep up with it and returned to the depot. He slept that night under the platform and every night thereafter for 5 years and 5 months, from August of 1936 to January of 1942.1975 times,4 times a day, he ran to the train looking for his beloved human. Arthritic and with diminished hearing, in January of 1942 he was run over by a train. His brokenhearted soul soared above the platform to reunite with his beloved human.
