Thinking of Buying a Puppy?
An Open Letter to A Puppy Buyer
Lend Me A Pup
I will lend to you for a while a puppy, God Said, for you to love him while he lives
and to mourn for him when he is gone. Maybe for twelve or fourteen years
or maybe for months of only two or three, but will you
till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you and should his stay be brief,
you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise that he will stay since all from earth return,
but there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true,
and from the folk that crowd life's land I have chosen you.
Now you will give him all your love and not think the
labor vain, nor will you hate me when I come take my pup back again.
I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord, thy will be done,"
for all the joys this pup will bring, the risk of grief you'll run.
Will you love him while you may, and for the happiness you'll know will you
shelter him with tenderness, forever grateful stay?
But should I call him back much sooner than you've planned,
please brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.
If, by your love, you've managed my wishes to achieve, in memory of him that you've loved
cherish every moment with your faithful bundle and know that he loved you too.
