The Great Dog Spirit

A reading of a poem accompanied by some acoustic guitar.

I really hope that this is enjoyable and that I don't sound terribly sophomoric. I don't usually share my poetry.

This was really nice to hear, snsranch.
Not sophomoric at all; more like heart-felt and real, but quietly profound.

Love it, snsranch. I'd definitely be in favor of more posts in this style, I think there is a lot that can be done with this.

Thanks for taking the time Corduroy, especially considering that you're thinking about and working on some very important stuff.

Aww this came up on rotation on MeMu and I just love it. Have a friend who is going through some old sick pet troubles and I'll send this to her.

I sent a link to this song to some not-quite friends who live near me whose dog died. Just left a link on facebook and said I was sorry for their loss. This must have been months ago. Last night I was in the pizza shop that they run and they specifically pulled me aside and said thanks so much, the song was perfect, and so thoughtful.
