First Line: The dog was there, outside her door
Last Line: To open them for her!
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Animals; Dogs

THE dog was there, outside her door,
She gave it food and drink,
She gave it shelter from the cold:
It was the night young Molly robbed
An old fool of his gold.

"Molly," I said, "you'll go to hell -- "
And yet I half believed
That ugly, famished, tottering cur
Would bark outside the gates of Heaven,
To open them for Her!
