FOR ANIMAL WELFARE

Poetry

Byronís dog, Boatswain

When Lord Byronís favourite dog died, the poet had a marble monument erected to his memory, with this inscription:

Near this spot
Are deposited the remains of one
Who possessed beauty without vanity,
Strength without insolence,
Courage without ferocity,
And all the virtues of man without his vices.
This praise, which would be unmeaning
Flattery if inscribed over human ashes,
Is but a just tribute to the memory of
Boatswain, a dog,
Who was born at Newfoundland, May 1803,
And died at Newstead Abbey, Nov. 18, 1808.
