Synopsis

To Flush, My Dog



Loving friend, the gift of one,

Who, her own true faith, hath run,

Through thy lower nature;

Be my benediction said

With my hand upon thy head,

Gentle fellow-creature ...



-Elizabeth Barrett Browning



Since prehistory, dogs have served as man's best friend, giving us loyalty, assistance and boundless inspiration.

Dogs offer comfort and amusement to their owners; they provide solace when we're sad, entertaining antics when we're bored and affection every day. To poets in particular, these beloved creatures are the most bountiful muses, as they bark, yip, hunt, fetch, growl and slumber, reflecting back at us our most heartfelt tenderness and often rewarding us with unconditional love we scarcely deserve.

Dog Poems offers a litter of verses in celebration of our most faithful companions by some of the greatest poets of all time.
