reprinting, since one part of Bil’am’s stream of praises memorialized in this week’s Parshas is that we are a nation of dogs.
Continuing on in Perek Shira…from every force of nature, from every created thing, we can learn how to connect with G-dliness. Here is the dog’s lesson.
Wag goes the tail, wide goes the eye
Up goes the ear, when the dog’s owner goes by
Woof, Bark or Arf, there’s always a barked hello
And where the Master goes, dogs like to follow
Dogs grovel and bow and know their owner
But even more they recognize their Creator
Lick goes the tongue as the dog shows its love
Shouldn’t mankind show devotion to the Master up Above?
