A Shepherd’s Tale

Written by Mary Ellen Klotz

(Kathy’s Mom)

Banjo’s story must be told
when life began the tale unfolds
A puppy so playful; he loved to have fun
chasing sticks, on the run
from early morn till day was done

He never met a tastier treat
than Ol’ McDonald’s “BON APPETIT”
from hash browns and sausage
to ice cream and cone
he often wished that place was home

In early years this kindly “gent”
brought a gift
from heaven sent
a gentle paw a tender sigh
he brought a smile
to those who cried
elders loved this handsome soul
in his presence they had no woes

Banjo at 10 years oldOh to swim that lake so grand
bubbles and waves
you bet I can
under the water he swam with glee
Banjo was there you better believe

Life is fragile and age creeps in
the body weakened
he fought to win

Banjo never lost his will
to let us know he loved us still
A loving and gentle spirit remains
in the hearts of your family

BANJO is your name

Sleep well our beloved Banjo.
