Druid's Dream
Bluetrix Druid's Dream - my right hand girl
18 May 1993 - 30 January 2008

Rich red cheeks
Turned silver streaked
Rich thick coat
Thinned out with time
Steel blue colour
Now darkened to grey
Brilliant white ruff
Yellowed with age

Missing a toe nail
Where it went
Who knows
Missing a tooth
Where it went
The cow knows
Missing a meal
As aging goes

Glorious show days
Now far in the past
Raising show puppies
They grow up too fast
Moving the stock
That job is passed on
You are just happy
To see a new dawn

Now we must part
sharp pains in my heart
You grew old with
Such charm, such grace
My Druid's Dream
Dream on, Dream on
