Hachikō Poem


Hachiko

Hachikō
the divine
waits in heaven for us
to sit at his feet
and to know how
to be
Hachikō
you make my heart cry
my tears run in rivers
to the sea
Hachikō

via Wiki:
In 1924, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo, took in Hachikō, a golden brown Akita, as a pet. During his owner’s life, Hachikō greeted him at the end of each day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return. The professor had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage and died, never returning to the train station where Hachikō was waiting.

Every day for the next nine years the dog waited at Shibuya station
