For a while I haven't post here. My life has been a little busy, but that is no excuse. Apollo harshly remembered me by killing one of the few friends I have... My dog. My posts will re-start with a a little homage to my lost friend.
The bright archer has shown his dark face
And now you rest in the embrace of his sister.
Go, reach the Goddess and play with her
For you certainly are fit for the playful Artemis.
I will remember your beautiful eyes
And your sweet nose, dark and moist.
The joy it was to play with you,
How you comforted us when we were down,
How you reached for us and thanked
For as little as a soft tap in your head.
You always seek to please us,
Often you showed confusion,
For we did not know what we want.
But still, you tried to do it…
I will remember your soft hair
And your warm licks,
Your joy and ecstasy every time we got home,
When I came from Lisbon
How you greet me jumping and running.
Now you left us and we are less.
But go, dance in the sky with the Dog Star,
Hunt with the archer in the deep forests,
Howl in the night with the wind that sweeps,
Become whatever you wished to be!
