Poet’s Corner

                                                            CANIS MAJOR

                                                            The great Overdog,
                                                            That heavenly beast
                                                            With a star in one eye,
                                                            Gives a leap in the east.

                                                            He dances upright
                                                            All the way to the west,
                                                            And never once drops
                                                            On his forefeet to rest.

                                                            I’m a poor underdog,
                                                            But tonight I will bark
                                                            With the great Overdog
                                                            That romps through the dark.

                                                            –Robert Frost, 1928
