Dog Stories, Prose And 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.

 

 

 

A most eloquent eulogy, preserved and handed down through generations of First Americans abiding in the 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 a dozen doves in circled flight.

I am the sparking star you'll see tonight.

 

Do not stand by my grave and cry.

I am not there, I did not die.
