A poem inspired by ruby dog.
Farewell Ruby dog, the town won’t be the same
You helped many in your quiet way
And we all knew your name.
Farewell Ruby dog, and to your Jane, hello
The Gift of Ruby to our Town
Reached further than you know.
Ruby represents what make our town so great
We are all unique, all different
But all can be your mate.
Farewell Ruby dog, your community is strong
We will stand together
And know that we belong
Our needs may change, our ideas must be debated
But Ruby dog reminds us
That Community is created.
When we greet each other in the street, we raise each other high
A simple smile and a nod
Can make spirits fly.
Our Community has shares its grief, its joys and bands together
A Community that loved a dog
And will remember her forever.
