By Sibella Campbell
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary K-3
Year: 2006 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

Megan, my dog,
You freed me from that churning
You turned and came back to me
as I screamed for you.

You glided to me over the sharp
like a ballerina
getting ready to dance,
and you pulled me to shore.

You gazed into my eyes,
and comforted me
as I cried for my father.

Megan, thank you.
