This is a poem written by by mother, Ann Hollister David, after the death of her dog Swartzie.
Since she was in college at the time, I think the poem was written about 1938.

Prayer For Swartzie

Oh God, be good to all little dogs,
For my little dog is dead,
I can do no kindess he can feel,
So I only pray, instead,
"Oh God, be good to all little dogs,"
Though my little dog is dead.

-- Ann Hollister
