Excerpt from Spun-Yarn and Spindrift High up in the courts of Heaven to - day A little dog-angel waits, With the other angels he will t play, But he sits alone at the gates; For I kw that my master will come, says he: And when he comes, he will call for me. He sees the Spirits that pass him by As they hasten towards the throne, And he watches them with a wistful eye As he sits at the gates alone; But I kw if I just wait patiently That some day my master will come, says he. And his master, far on the earth below, As he sits in his easy chair, Forgets sometimes, and he whistles low For the dog that is t there; And the little dog-angel cocks his ears, And dreams that his master's call be hears.
