Limits and Renewals, by Rudyard Kipling

Four–Feet

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 am 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.
