Four Feet
Rudyard Kipling

I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind,
But I can't forget, if I wanted to,
Four-feet trotting behind.

Day after day, the whole day through-
Wherever my road inclined-
Four-Feet said, "I'm coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.

Now I must go by some other round,-
Which I shall never find-
Somewhere that does not carry the sound,
Of Four-Feet trotting behind.
