I wonder if Christ had a little black dog,
Ms. June Szabo recalls:
When I was a child, (78 yrs ago), our family had a friend of long standing and we three children were blessed with weekly visits to this very elderly lady. We would play anagrams, play duets on the piano and read from books on her shelf.
Among the books was Ted Malone's "Between The Book Ends". We found the poem of "The Little Black Dog" and we honestly could not wait to go back the following weeks to again have the privilege of reading the poem.
Thru the internet I have again found the poem, cried, and cried again, just to recall those happy days and this wonderful story.
I am now 87 years old and memories are an important part of my
life. Thank you very much for making my day. Incidentally, I was willed the
book along with an Edgar Guest, Rubiat/Kiam and Ted Malone. What a blessing.
