The Creation Of The Collie
He made the regal collie so beautiful, proud and bold
the dazzling noble sable, with coat of shimmering gold.
His arms extended towards the blazing sun
there stod the sable collie,the lovely golden one.
He turned his head so slightly towards the clear blue sky
and made the blue merle, so pleasing to the eye,
Tan and white were added to his colouring blue
and there he had created a dog of love
When night at last began to fall,
he made the darkest of them all.
He made the combinding black
with tan and white the tri colour of sheer delight.
There stod those three great collies beneath the setting sun
the blue merle, tri colour and the lovley golden sable one.
Gifted with movement so graceful and so smooth
three truly noble collies, to them our hearts we loose.
Dogs are not our whole life,
but they make our lives whole.
My dog listens when I talk
He goes with me for a walk
When I sleep, he sleeps too
he does evertyhing that I do.
When my sister/brother/friend makes me sad
he hangs his head and looks so sad,
he cuddles up and licks my hand,
and tells me that he can understand.
As he stands on the hill-top edged against the blue,
he´s the picture of beauty, a sight to behold,
a beautiful collie of white and true gold.
His coat is so long, silky and thick
Out of all the others, the collie I´d pick.
For loyalty devotion, for beauty and love
no dog is his equal on earth or above.
