"Making the Dog Go Back."
Never a sign of Shep about
Ah, what a threadbare ruse !
Down the lane, to the gate, and out,
Sorry the scamp is loose ;
Visions of troubles close at hand,
Keeping one on the rack ;
Hard for a boy, you understand,
Making the dog go back !
Whistled to come, day after day,
Lured with endearments fond ;
Sniffing you up out in the hay,
Swimming with you in the pond ;
Chasing your foe with bristling mane,
not on the rabbit's track ;
Wonder it goes against the grain,
Making the dog go back ?
Ha, there he is, low in the grass,
Only his ears in view ;
Spying the way that you must pass,
Keeping his distance too ;
ITeedless alike to wile and threat,
Sneaking away to tack t
Small returns for your pains you get,
Making the dog go back! :
Another halt, a few rods on,
And a bootless chase the while ;
The homestead disappears anon ;
But, again, within the mile,
Shep's bland nozzle is peeking out
The gate's gaping crack ;
Ready to call it quits, no doubt,
Making the dog go back 1
Many a memory fond is there,
Dear days that now are o'er ; -
And ever the heart is fain to face
The old home-road once more ;
Only In dreams, I now may see
Old Shep upon my track,
And morning seems unkind to me,
Making the dog go back I
