Elegy for Gilchrist, Lord of Dogs

Maister Colyne Stewart, October AS 52 (2017)

Oh, lean of leg, the gallant canine stands
His hazel eyes regard ducal estate
The grand demesne of sky, and lake, and land,
Belov’d by all, and yet life cannot wait,
A call to pass beyond mere mortal gate,
He gentle licks soft hands with kindly sigh,
Lo, unafraid he goes to meet his fate,
And now the stars fair twinkle, like his eye.
