A boy and his dog make a glorious pair, No better friendship is found anywhere--Edgar Guest

A Boy And His Dog - Poem by Edgar Albert Guest

A boy and his dog make a glorious pair: No better friendship is found anywhere, For they talk and they walk and they run and they play, And they have their deep secrets for many a day; And that boy has a comrade who thinks and who feels, Who walks down the road with a dog at his heels. He may go where he will and his dog will be there, May revel in mud and his dog will not care; Faithful he'll stay for the slightest command And bark with delight at the touch of his hand; Oh, he owns a treasure which nobody steals, Who walks down the road with a dog at his heels. No other can lure him away from his side; He's proof against riches and station and pride; Fine dress does not charm him, and flattery's breath Is lost on the dog, for he's faithful to death; He sees the great soul which the body conceals— Oh, it's great to be young with a dog at your heels! A flame's in skies. The night lays dead and grey. The wood's high trees are crowding around, But in the night I clear hear sound - The hum of mobs in city faraway. About the poet.

His Dog. Pete bristles when the doorbell rings. Last night he didn't act the same. Dogs have a way of knowin' things, An' when the dreaded cable came, He looked at mother an' he whined His soft, low sign of somethin' wrong, As though he knew that we should find The news that we had feared so long. He's followed me about the place An' hasn't left my heels to-day; He's rubbed his nose against my face As if to kiss my grief away. There on his plate beside the door You'll see untouched his mornin' meal. I never understood before That dogs share every hurt you feel.

A boy and his dog make a glorious pair: No better friendship is found anywhere, For they talk and they walk and they run and they play, And they have their deep secrets for many a day; And that boy has a comrade who thinks and who feels, Who walks down the road with a dog at his heels. He may go where he will and his dog will be there, May revel in mud and his dog will not care; Faithful he'll stay for the slightest command And bark with delight at the touch of his hand; Oh, he owns a treasure which nobody steals, Who walks down the road with a dog at his heels. No other can lure him away from his side; He's proof against riches and station and pride; Fine dress does not charm him, and flattery's breath Is lost on the dog, for he's faithful to death; He sees the great soul which the body conceals— Oh, it's great to be young with a dog at your heels! Oh, it's great to be young with a dog at your heels" Must be one of the best poems composed by Edgar Albert Guest. Qualities like loyalty and bondage with owner by the dog are marvelously unfolded. A pleasure to read. Report Reply.
