A good dog never dies. He always stays. He walks besides you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter's drawing near. His head is within our hand in his old way.
A good dog never dies.
Three men, together riding, Can win new worlds at their will;
Resolute, neer dividing, Lead, and be victors still. Three can laugh and doom a king, Three can make the planets sing.
The talking oak To the ancient spoke. But any tree Will talk to me.
We are made whole By books, as by great spaces and the stars
May I forget what ought to be forgotten;
and recall, unfailing, all that ought to be recalled, each kindly thing, forgetting what might sting.
Where weary folk toil, black with smoke, And hear but whistles scream, I went, all fresh from dawn and dew To carry them a dream. I went to bitter lanes and dark, Who once had known the sky, To carry them a dream-and found They had more dreams than I.
