Subject(s): Animals; Dogs; Seashore; Speech Disorders; Beach; Coast; Shore; Stuttering; Muteness

Under the Kiawe he lies --
His big brown eyes
Must see the sky he loved so well
And the wind must reach his ears.
The swell
Of the sea I think he hears --
The little crabs come out to play
And every day
Perhaps he runs the beach --
For now he knows
The Joy -- the Freedom
From the leash --
A little dog -- with not a voice to speak
But between us
The illimitable deep
Of a glance
That mutely said,
"I know -- "

Sleep well -- little Keko --
