THOUGHTS ON SEEING A DOG COME INTO CHURCH

Why did he come in here
Out of the scented summer morning
Into this dim, prayer-filled place?

What did his wet black nose find so enticing?
Why did his sharp ears ignore the world of noise?
Was it by chance?

Or did some deep, forgotten call,
A sound as powerful as a masterís voice,
Echo in that unquestioning small head?

So that he came, searching, not knowing whom he sought.
Could it be in this holy place to stand
And sniff the fingers of his Masterís Hand?
