Sled Dog

No matter which way he does face
In his eye you see the race
From start to finish at winning pace.
He is the sled dog, born of faith.

Though he once pulled heavy loads
In course of daily work and toil
Now he races to serve his creed
Of serving man in face of need.

He is indeed a northern breed
Of the true North strong and free
Of harsh conditions, freezing cold
And true resolve of spirits bold.

In his eyes you see the light
Of that spirit burning bright.
He loves that challenge, surging fast
To the future from the past.

He’s keeper of a legacy, of living on the land
Long before technology gave man too much the upper hand
Over nature and her denizens, not leaving them a prayer.
He faced his battles on a dare of terms more equal and more fair.

Now in his eye he has the key to future equanimity
To face the challenge of the wilds, yet still belong as nature’s child
In a scheme that sets all free – more true to our humanity.
This is the challenge do or die – with answer in the sled dog’s eye!
