The Dogs of Athens

dogsofathensEnchantingly free, these beings,

Friendly guardians of sacred places,

Living as one wishes to live.

Enlightened governance

That allows them

To just be.

Diogenes lies with his dog

In the caves of the Agora,

Fleeing the noontide heat.

In the sacred grove,

We laugh with Dionysus.

To read the rest of the poem, please visit The Dogs of Athens.
