DOG STORIES & DOG POEMSDog Stories, Prose & Poetry

Old dogs, war dogs, puppies or strays,

Poetry has power to brighten our days

Dog stories and poems are best read aloud,

To an audience of one or a theater crowd.

 

 

 

One of the most eloquent eulogies, preserved and handed down through generations of First Americans abiding in Southwestern U.S.

 

HOPI INDIAN PRAYER

Author ~ Unknown

 

Do not stand by my grave and weep,

I am not there. I do not sleep.

 

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

 

When you waken in the morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet white doves in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

 

Do not stand by my grave and cry.

I am not there, I did not die.
