Who mourns the soul of a hound when he dies?

Who Mourns the Soul of a Hound When He Dies?

Who mourns the soul of a hound when he dies
Who even knows that he’s gone,
The master, the huntsman, they miss him perhaps,
And the farm where his walking was done.

But when once again on the opening day
The seasons first music rings clear,
Which of us misses the voice that is gone,
Or spare him a sorrowful tear.

They try for us, cry for us, gallop and fly for us-
Gad how the beauties can move?
In the whole of the shires not a pack to touch ours,
But it’s hounds, not the hound, that we love.

There’s few of us see in the course of the day,
How Harmony worked out the line;
How Destiny’s Dabster takes after his dam,
Or the work of that new bitch, Divine.

Each has temperament, each has his tricks,
The joy of them few of us know;
Few of us worry, and few of us care-
We still have the pack when they go.

Only the master, who growls out to Tom,
In a voice gone surprisingly gruff-
”Sexton must go, Tom, he’s getting damn slow”,
God knows we shall miss him enough.

But if he goes lonely, unwept and unsung,
That hound forgotten too soon,
I like to think that the pack sing his dirge,
In the night when they sing to the moon.

About Nico

I am an equine photographer, website designer and hosting provider living in Lincolnshire.

I work with clients who are sole traders and others which are FTSE companies. They are equally important to me.

If you need commercial photography, editorial photography, event photography, lifestyle, equestrian or wedding photography, then I can help you, with over 30 years experience in these areas.

I also teach photography. I mentor photographers with a range of experience, from beginners to working professionals and run an equine photography course which gives members access to articles about the business of equestrian photography.

I have a varied set of skills, having worked for well known web design and web analytics companies in parallel to my photography.

I design, host and maintain websites for clients as varied as farms, interior designers and equestrian centres, as well as for bloggers and sportspeople, including many riders.

I am the Public Relations Officer for the Midlands Point-to-Point Association, a role which utilises my PR and social media skills to promote horse racing both online and in the National press.

If you think that I could be the right person to help you, whatever your project, then please get in touch and we can discuss what you need and the ways in which I can help.
