Due to the recent law suits filed against the users of midi's in personal web pages, I have removed the music from my pages.
Please accept my apologies for a less than fun page!
If or when the world changes back to a non-greedy status, I may add music back into my web pages.

~ Thank you ~




by Beth Norman Harris

Treat me kindly, my beloved master,

for no heart in all the world

is more grateful for kindness

than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit

with a stick,

for though I should lick your hand

between the blows,

your patience and understanding

will more quickly teach me

the things you would have me do.

basset hound

Speak to me often,

for your voice is the world's sweetest music,

as you must know by the

fierce wagging of my tail

when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet,

please take me inside,

for I am now a domesticated animal,

no longer used to bitter elements.


I ask no greater glory

than the privilege of sitting

at your feet

beside the hearth.

Though had you no home,

I would rather follow you

through ice and snow

than rest upon the softest pillow

in the warmest home

in all the land,

for you are my god

and I am your devoted worshipper.


Keep my pan filled with fresh water,

for although I should not

reproach you were it dry,

I cannot tell you when

I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food,

that I may stay well

to romp and play

and do your bidding,

to walk by your side

and stand ready,

willing and able

to protect you with my life

should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master,

should the great Master see fit

to deprive me of my health or sight,

do not turn away from me.

Rather hold me gently in your arms

as skilled hands grant me

the merciful boon of eternal rest

- and I will leave you knowing,

with the last breath I draw,

my fate was ever safest in your hands.
