Ever wondered what a dog poet would say? Here are two poems by Billy Collins from two different dogs. One you can read, and one you can watch. The first is short and sweet, the second, we’ll leave as a surprise for you. Here is the first:
A Dog on His Master…
As young as I look
I am growing faster than he
seven to one is the ratio they tend to say
whatever the number
I will pass him one day
and take the lead
the way I do on our walks in the woods
and if this ever manages to cross his mind
it will be the sweetest shadow I have ever cast
Now one you can watch. You can enjoy both poems here.
We Speak Dog and it sounds like Billy Collins does too.
