Why Do You Run?

Streaming lines close to and fro
Ever changing, on the go.
Graceful Whippet why do you run?

Length of neck with arch so fine
Clean swept brisket and underline
Elegant Whippet why do you run?

When the dodging hare is seen
Few there are half as keen.
Coursing Whippet Why do you run?

Hysterical when held on lead
Watching others show their speed
Racing Whippet why do you run?

At times upon my bed you lie
With well-chewed treasure and guilty eye
Playful Whippet why do you run?

When you leave your earthly run
To chase in fields beyond the sun
Faithful Whippet for whom will you run?

Norman W. Ellis, December 1, 1971
