The White Whippet

Squatted on their bunkers at the corner of the street
outside 'The Pewter Pigeon' a knot of pitmen sat
waiting for the doors to open, cursing the raw sleet,
or muttering with husky throats dully of this and that.

When suddenly within the ring of street lamps gusty flame
out of the stormy shadows of the black November night,
like a little slip of moonshine a snow white whippet came
and stayed one breathless moment before their startled sight.

Speechlessly they gazed upon her as she stood with a lifted paw,
clean limbed, with quivering muzzle and jetty eyes agleam,
nor heard the doors swing open wide as each lad looked with awe
one moment on the vision of his own heart's secret dream
