Now I invite you to read a poem written for a beloved dog:
"To a dog, which belonged to a lady, and died while her husband was absent"
Lies here, flower, a little dog
beacause he had a serious cold
of absence, without being syrup,
A carnation will come out
so that spring will say it, that love,
medicinal makes law,
if there is an ox tongue in grass,
let it be a dog in flower.
Luis de Góngora
