a dog's good-bye

paws on his casket
he drops a white rose
onto his friend
  a soldier come home
  his final badge of honor

    Another top notch tanka! The emotion in this is so sincere... I can just see that dog and his mopey eyes, looking down at his master, saying "So long!". Truly a beautiful poem!
