Duke by Louise


" Duke "

{ L. J. Pompey's Pillar }

April 18 1972 ----- June 24 1998

Arabian Stallion

My beautiful! my beautiful! that standest meekly by,

With thy proudly arched and glossy neck and dark and fiery eye!

Fret not to roam the desert now with all they winged speed:

I may not mount on thee again -- thou'rt gone my Arab steed.


"Arab's farewell to his steed" --
