Soul of a Shepherd
Old or young, I’m now gone.
My soul still watches over you.
Day and night you’ll feel me at your side.
I guard your house. I guard your sleep.
Grateful for the days we spent together,
They call me German Shepherd Dog.
The beautiful dog! The great dog!
The dog of all dogs!

Shepherds of the Wind
And God created the white German Shepherd; with a
Handful of fleecy clouds and star light shinning.
Then sprinkled their eyes, lips, noses and pads
With blackbirds flying.
And blew His breath to the wind, giving life, sure-nature,
Courage and smooth gait flowing.
A motion and a spirit, that impels, with long
Lasting love for them ever showing.
