Dog From Duluth

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SATB a capella

I wrote the text for this piece as a journal entry one evening as I watched my sweet dog Gobi sleep. In his last days I was fortunate to be able to write a piece celebrating him and rejoicing in the precious innocent spirits that are our animals.

Text: 

Innocent, pure,
Pure innocence.

Warm soft eyes
Follow me everywhere.

Nose, tail, paw,
Dog from Duluth
In your youth
You shredded newspaper!

Nose, tail, paw, ear, heartbeat.
Beautiful creatures that come and go
So quickly...
