For farmlady ...remembering Maggie.

Dog song 2 by The Be Good Tanyas

 Out in the trees, dirt on our knees
We laid him down forever
And on that hill there it was still
As in the ever after

He lays his rest we knew it best
To lay him down so gently
And now he sleeps where moss does creep
And no more is he with me

The birds did cry, and so did i
To think of life so lonely
And in their song I heard it long
What sadness, and what beauty
Your friend is gone, but you live on
In life you loved him fully
But now little streams and forests dream
And all is made more holy

Kerry, I'm so touched that you dedicated a post to..remembering Maggie. Thank you. This means so much to me. I listened to some of The songs by the Be Good Tanyas. I like listening to them. Very bluegrass and soothing.
This was so sweet and made the mourning of our Maggie easier.
Love, Farmlady
