What Is A Dog...Your Best Friend - Poem by Ken e Hall

You might ask,
Of all creatures great and small
You’ll find the dog above all stands mountains tall,
That face, that look, that pleasure, that panting tongue
His undying faith devotion without hymns sung
A friend indeed to comfort your inner soul,
His lifelong love of you, his born innate goal,
In the valley in the shadow of death he will lay down his life,
All his courage he will throw at that thrusting knife.
Tired when you arrive home from a day’s hard work,
He will jump up to greet, his tail wagging berserk,
Then touch your skin with his soft cold nose
You see, to him you smell like a garden rose
There is a time he wants to be alone
When he’s gnawing and chewing his favourite bone,
If you’re unlucky not to have such a wonderful pet,
Off to the pound your best friend is bet.
